We hope that you are able to find some time to indulge in a good read this week, whether it is with coffee in place of your morning commute or after you put the kids to bed. Why? Because during a time that can feel incredibly isolating, books are a vehicle for connection with the community.
Here’s a look at the authors that were scheduled to speak and hold a book signing at SXSW EDU this year. Through their work, these writers share their knowledge and challenge us to think critically about the future of learning. There’s a book on this list for every type of reader and we are excited to share this roster with you!
We encourage you to join us in supporting local businesses. We’ve included links to learn more about these books and order through our longtime SXSW EDU Bookstore partner, BookPeople – the largest independent bookstore in Texas. You can also visit your local independent bookseller’s website to learn how they are adjusting their buying options to support readers during this time.
Don’t stop at the epilogue though! Share your reactions and start a conversation with others in the SXSW EDU community on social media. We will be using the hashtag #SXSWEDUbooks on Twitter to follow the conversations.
