Ke’ara joined the Texas Book Festival in 2021 and is responsible for coordinating and executing the communication, marketing, publicity, and messaging efforts across multiple channels. She holds a master’s degree in Television Producing & Management from Boston University and a double bachelor’s degree in Radio-TV-Film & English from The University of Texas at Austin. Prior to joining the Texas Book Festival, she worked in entertainment and events with SXSW, Austin Film Festival, Austin Film Society, and The Ellen Degeneres Show.
In her spare time, she teaches in the Radio-TV-Film department at Austin Community College. You’ll probably catch her rewatching Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice and over-analyzing Mr. Darcy’s famous hand-twitch while patiently waiting on George R.R. Martin to release The Winds of Winter.
