We don’t care if curling up with a book and warm drink on cold rainy days is cliche, because frankly that sounds amazing today.
We're already feeling nostalgic about the 2018 SA Book Festival, and because we know you are too, here's a little #tbt for you. Who remembers the great panel that featured Francisco Cantú?
Our friends at @texasbookfest just released their schedule for the 2018 Texas Book Festival. Check out the link in our bio to see all of the events happening!
We know we just got lit last week, but are you ready to GET LIT with us again?  Join us to GET LIT with JULIÁN CASTRO (Oct. 30, Pearl Stable, 5:30 PM) for a discussion about civil service, the immigrant story, and the American Dream.

For decades, since the first open heart surgery, a reliable implantable device—a successful artificial heart—has been an innovation always just out of reach, but not for lack of trying. Join us at GET LIT with Mimi Swartz (link in profile) to learn more about “Ticker,” which details the struggle and lands at the intersection of medicine and technology, focusing on daring doctors and brave patients, and ultimately asks the biggest question of all: what’s the morality of putting a dent in mortality?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ PICTURED: Dr. Denton Cooley implanting the artificial heart designed by Domingo Liotta, 1969.⠀ (📷: Texas Heart Institute)
Our amazing Book Festival staff is growing! Please help us welcome Josh McCormack, our new Communications Coordinator, Edith Esparza-Young, our new Educational Outreach Coordinator, and Marcia Logan, our new Special Events Coordinator, to our SABF team!

Don't forget you're invited to GET LIT with Mimi Swartz on September 18 at the Central Library! Come hear about “Ticker: The Quest to Create an Artificial Heart.” . .

Our friends at @texasbookfest have revealed the full author lineup for the 2018 Texas Book Festival! You can see the full lineup of 275+ authors on their site (link in bio). We'll see you in Austin October 27-28! . #📚 #❤️ #📖
Did you know heart disease kills more people around the world than all cancers combined? And when heart surgeries were first conceived, people thought that if you put in someone else's heart, then maybe that person wouldn't love the same people anymore? And people thought women's hearts couldn't be given to men? And on and on!⠀ ⠀ Join us to GET LIT with MIMI SWARTZ (Sept 18, Central Library, 5:30 PM) to hear these and more fascinating stories about the holy grail of medicine.

You're invited to GET LIT with Mimi Swartz on September 18 at the Central Library.

Swartz is a "witty, savvy, seasoned journalist" (Kirkus Reviews), long-time Texas Monthly editor, and two-time National Magazine Award winner. Part investigative journalism, part medical mystery, "Ticker" tells a dazzling story of modern innovation, recounting fifty years of false starts, abysmal failures and miraculous triumphs, as experienced by one the world’s foremost heart surgeons, O.H. “Bud” Frazier.  Join us at 5:30 PM for book sales (courtesy of The Twig) and a wine reception. Program starts at 6PM. GET LIT is free and open to the public. .
