Sponsor the Festival


Thanks to the generosity of individuals, business, foundations, volunteers and partners, the Texas Book Festival, a non-profit organization, continues to promote literature, libraries, and literacy in Texas. Your financial support helps keep the Festival FREE and helps fund our Reading Rock Stars literacy program and grants to Texas public libraries.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Texas Book Festival!

Donate Online. Hundreds of individuals support the Texas Book Festival with an annual gift. A gift in any amount makes a difference. When you make a donation of $100 or more, we thank you with a Festival Friends Pass. A critical funding stream that helps keep the Festival free for all, a Festival Friends Pass allows the donor, plus one guest, priority line access at designated Festival Friends Pass sessions and signings.
