First Edition Literary Gala

The 19th Annual First Edition Literary Gala will be held October 24, 2014, at the Four Seasons Hotel. Proceeds from the Gala provide critical financial support for the Texas Book Festival to carry out its mission and programs. 

As free cultural and literary events become increasingly rare, the Texas Book Festival remains committed to providing the annual Festival free of charge for all to enjoy. Financial support from our donors also funds our Reading Rock Stars Literacy program, which provides author visits and book donations to children in low-income schools, and our Texas Library Grants, issued each spring to selected libraries across the state who apply for support. 

When you purchase a Gala table, you are not only signing up for a stimulating and unforgettable evening packed with authors, business leaders, dignitaries, and cultural arts supporters, you are helping the TBF make an impact in communities across Texas.
