houston_indie_book_festivalBooks are knowledge hacking. They are also social engineering. The very best writers invent philosophies that circumvent existing restrictions and get us closer to the mysteries of the universe, its order and our own minds.

The Houston Indie Book Festival is hosted by Gulf Coast and the Menil Community Arts Festival through a collaboration with The Menil Collection and the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses.

The 2013 festival will be on Saturday, April 20 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Menil Park. The event is completely free and open to the public, and features a variety of nationally-distributed literary journals alongside new and used booksellers, publishers, small presses, literary organizations, and writers.
