Texas Library Association Conference in April

I had a great time in Houston at the Texas Library Association Conference. Interestingly, the big publishers brought few books for adults.  The independent and university presses had excellent selections in fiction, non-fiction and poetry.  I visited my favorites: Arte Publico Press, Cinco Puntos Press, Orca Books, and the university presses: Texas Tech, University of North Texas, University of Texas at Austin and Southern Methodist University. I picked up some interesting titles that will be reviewed in later posts.

Eerie Books Closed in Wylie, Texas

Eerie Books closed earlier this year.  Randy created a great bookstore with an excellent collection of books and memorabilia.  I was sorry to see another great indie store close.
