2019 Texas Book Fest Author Parties – RSVP!

Authors at an Authors' Party

The Texas Book Festival Weekend is, of course, all about the books, but it’s also about opportunities for our authors to meet and hang out with one another, enjoy the city, and party. Below are invitations to author parties during the Festival Weekend. This is all optional and purely for fun. Join us for some fun downtime outside of Festival programming!


Please be sure to RSVP for events as soon as possible. 
These invitations are for Festival authors only and non-transferable.
