The Sixth Annual Houston Indie Book Fest Celebrates Small Presses, Magazines, and Independent Bookstores in Houston, Austin, and beyond.

[Houston, TX] – Celebrate the sixth annual Houston Indie Book Festival along with dozens of locally- and nationally-distributed literary journals, local booksellers, publishers, small presses, literary organizations, and writers at Menil Park on Saturday, April 20th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Founded through collaboration between NANO Fiction and Gulf Coast in 2008, this year’s festival is sponsored by Gulf Coast and The Menil Community Arts Festival. The event functions as a spotlight on the writers, artists, journals, presses, independent bookstores, and organizations that are committed to preserving and promoting the arts and humanities within Houston, Austin, Louisiana, and the entire Gulf Coast region.

The festival is free and open to the public, and is scheduled to correspond with the Menil Community Arts Festival, allowing visitors to enjoy a wide variety of panels, workshops, outdoor art exhibits, tours of the Menil, live music, food trucks, and more. In addition, Inprint and Gulf Coast will host a reading every hour from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., featuring University of Houston students Sophie Klahr, Adam Peterson, and Austin Tremblay; nationally-recognized Houston writer and graphic novelist Mat Johnson; Austin-based poets Derrick Brown and Jason Bayani; and a special performance by BooTown Theater.

Since its inception, the festival has grown from a small gathering of local bookstores and journals to a full-scale regional event. In 2012, over seventy vendors from all over the Gulf Coast area exhibited to over 2,500 people throughout the course of the day.
