Books for every reader, readers for every book!

Texas Book Festival

If you're a book lover in Austin, you probably already know about the Texas Book Festival, and it's probably the highlight of your year. But did you know that in addition to the yearly Festival in downtown Austin, the TBF also runs an array of programs supporting literacy and promoting reading in Austin and around the state of Texas? Whether we're bringing some of the best children's authors into Title I Texas schools and giving the students copies of their books with our Reading Rock Stars program, geeking out with teens over our favorite YA authors at the Texas Teen Book Festival, helping Texas libraries add to their collections with our Texas Library Grants, inspiring young Texas writers with our Fresh Ink Fiction Contest, or of course, hosting our annual Festival Weekend extravaganza of books, author talks, music, family activities, and more, the Texas Book Festival is working to promote and support literacy. Whether you can give $5 or $50 or more, every gift helps us bring books and authors to readers. Help us inspire Texans of all ages to love reading!
