The seventh annual New Fiction Confab will be held on Saturday, April 23 at the John Henry Faul Central Library at 800 Guadalupe St.

This year’s event will feature Kirk Lynn (“Rules for Werewolves”), Karan Mahajan (“The Association of Small Bombs”), Karen Olsson (“All the Houses”), Virginia Reeves (“Work Like Any Other”), Alexander Chee (“The Queen of the Night”), Kaitlyn Greenidge (“We Love You, Charlie Freeman”), Samantha Hunt (“Mr. Splitfoot”) and Sunil Yapa (“The Heart Is a Muscle the Size of a Fist”).

As you can probably tell, this will be quite a literary conclave, featuring some of Austin’s finest authors, plus such visiting authors as Chee, Greenidge, Hunt and Yapa.

The event is one of the biggest literary programs of the Austin Public Library Friends Foundation. All events are free and open to the public. For details on the various sessions, go here.
