Writers talking to writers about writing. That is what Austin Liti Limits is all about. We are shining the spotlight on writers living in or visiting Austin, Texas, filming readings and interviews with bestsellers, award-winners, up-and-comers, and indies.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this episode was filmed virtually via Zoom. Austin Liti Limits will reconvene at BookPeople when it is safe to do so.
