On Saturday November 5, Andrés Neuman, author of How to Travel without Seeing, will appear at two events at the Texas Book Festival.
The Texas Book Festival connects authors and readers through experiences that celebrate the culture of literacy, ideas, and imagination.
Neuman's first event will be a Spanish-language panel at the AHORA SI Tent, with Eduardo Rabasa, Mauro Javier Cardenas, and Antonio Ruiz Camacho, entitled "New Letters in a New Land": Latin America is a powerhouse of dynamic new literature. Catch up with the latest work from some of the region’s most acclaimed, awarded and up-and-coming authors.
When: Saturday, November 6, 2016, 12:30–1:15 pm
Where: AHORA SI Tent, Grounds surrounding the State Capitol in Austin, Texas
Neuman's second event will be an English-language panel in the State Capitol Building with Geoff Dyer entitled "Oh the Places You'll Go": The work of a travel writer is hardly straightforward. There are whirlwind trips and there are deliberate pilgrimages; culture and current events sit right alongside the writer’s personal past. Two of the world’s preeminent writers on place, Andrés Neuman (How to Travel Without Seeing) and Geoff Dyer (White Sands) discuss what a travel writer is truly seeing—and why they choose to look in the first place.
When: Saturday, November 6, 2016, 3:00–3:45 pm
Where: CAP E2.028 State Capitol Building, 1100 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701
Both events will be followed by signings at the Main Signing Tent.
