Plano: Prim And Bookish

I'm a lot of things, but I ain't frontin'. I don't try to be sumpin' I'm not. I ain't got nothin' to hide...unlike the City of Plano. Our northerly suburban neighbors would have you believe not only that they know how to read but that they celebrate the activity to the extent that they need to plan an entire festival around books. I, for one, am not fooled. I know about you, Plano—you, with your heroin addictions and your casual-dining restaurants and your high-end shopping centers. You won't get this one past me, no sirree. Maybe I'll just stop by between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. for the 5th Annual Plano Book Festival in Haggard Park, 901 East 15th St., this Sunday and see for myself how much not-reading is going on. Admission's free, anyway. Call 972-839-9529.
Sun., March 26, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
