James Magnuson Book Launch

Sponsored by Michener Center for Writers, Texas Book Festival, Texas Monthly, Bob Bullock Museum's Texas Artist Series. The Michener Center for Writers hosts a book launch celebrating the release of center director James Magnuson's latest novel, "Famous Writers I Have Known." Set (where else?) in a prestigious MFA program, the story tells of a con man who poses as a famously reclusive writer and schemes to bilk the program's wealthy benefactor out of his last millions. Texas Monthly editor Jake Silverstein will interview Magnuson. A book signing with hot cocoa and s'mores reception follows. [Lecture/talk, Reading, Reception, Everyone, Lifestyle & Community]
