Inprint Brown Reading Series (Houston)

One of the best things about living in Houston (and, believe it or not, Houston is a great place to live) is the Inprint Brown Reading Series. Inprint is a nonprofit organization with a mission "to inspire readers and writers in Houston." The reading series line-up for the 2009-2010 season has just been announced, and it looks fantastic. As explained by the Inprint website: "Each reading features an on-stage interview, followed by a book sale and signing, run by Brazos Bookstore." Tickets for individual readings are just $5 and can be purchased online a few weeks prior to each reading. Season tickets (including parking passes and reserved seating) are $150.

Here's the schedule:

  • Sept. 21: Joseph O'Neill (Netherland) and Marilynne Robinson (Home)
  • Oct. 19: E.L. Doctorow (Homer & Langley)
  • Jan. 11: Mary Karr (Lit)
  • Jan. 25: David Wroblewski (The Story of Edgar Sawtelle)
  • Mar. 1: John Banville (The Sea) and Abraham Verghese (Cutting for Stone)
  • Mar. 22: Tracy Kidder (Strength in What Remains)
  • April 12: Dorianne Laux (Facts About the Moon) and Patricia Smith (Blood Dazzler)
  • May 3: Oscar Casares (Amigoland) and Gwendolyn Zepeda (Lone Star Legend)
Also, Kate DiCamillo is coming to Houston on October 18th as part of the Inprint Readings for Young People.
