2020 Festival Friends

Festival Friends are donors who give $100 or more annually, whom we thank with a Festival Friends Pass. Festival Friends help TBF champion authors and a vibrant Texas culture of books, reading, and writing. At the Texas Book Festival, we strive every day to share the life-changing joy of reading, accessible to all Texans. Individual donations go a long way to making this a reality. Take a look at our 2019 Annual Report to see the impact your donation makes.
