Word Wranglers use words to convey ideas, stories, portray people and places.  We want to honor our Word Wranglers for their hard work and dedication to their craft.  We also want to give our community an opportunity to meet these authors and learn about the writing craft.

The authors we invite to participate in our Festival have written books on children’s stories, the art of quilting, archaeology, poetry, Texas cookbooks, bird watching, fiction, history, historical fiction, mystery, romance, music, Texas Gardening, and anything related to Texas. We have a day-long festival at the Giddings Public Library & Cultural Center where authors sell their books and take questions. Some authors read or talk to groups of students that come in to the library.
