One Page Salon – Wimberley, Texas

April 30 2024 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM CDT

The One Page Salon (called “the best literary evening in town” by the Austin American-Statesman) is going on the road in 2024!

Join us for a special Wimberley, Texas edition of the popular reading series featuring local writers and special guests. 

For this special event, the WLT is excited to partner with the Wimberley Area Writers and WimberleyArts.org. 

On Tuesday, April 30, five outstanding writers – Nathan Brown, Wes Ferguson, Kimberly Garza, Bianca V. Gonzalez Perez, and Stacey Swann – will take the stage and read one page from a work in progress, which means the audience will be among the first to hear new material from our talented line-up (our readers will be announced shortly). Plus, there will be literary chit chat and fun & games and laughter and so much more.

The One Page Salon in Wimberley will take place on the lovely outdoor patio at 220 Fine Art Gallery (at 220 Old Kyle Road, right off the Square) where attendees can enjoy delicious libations while they enjoy the program. Your host for the evening will be WLT Executive Director Becka Oliver. 

Thank you to our partners:
