  13. Round Rock event link is wrong. Here's the updated link:https://www.roundrocktexas.gov/event/round-rock-local-author-fair-2/

  14. Actually there's multiple links. That one is from 2018. There's also this one. https://www.roundrocktexas.gov/event/round-rock-local-author-fair-4/

    They seem to create a new page each year for some reason, which is not a good idea.
