We are excited to be a part of the 13th Annual Travis Heights Art Trail by hosting the first Literary Coffee House Live Author’s Book Reading.

Each year, artists who live and have home studios in the Travis Heights Neighborhood open their homes as part of a 2 day grassroots art show, created by and for the artists of Austin. Art fans can walk along the beautiful streets of the Travis Heights neighborhood and take an intimate look into the homes and studios of these local artists.

New this year, the Literary Coffee House at The Fairview will host 10 local authors reading and signing their books. Stop by on Saturday, November 7, 2015 or Sunday, November 8 to meet the authors and hear them present their art in their own voice.
