Support the Texas Book Festival

Thanks to the generous support of donors, the Texas Book Festival is able to bring authors, books, and literacy outreach to more Texans than ever!

We will welcome more than 280 authors to the annual Texas Book Festival on October 27 – 28. The Festival is free and open to the public. Through our Reading Rock Stars program, more than 93,000 books have been given to Title I elementary students in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and the Rio Grande Valley. In 2017, we gave $100,000 to 44 public libraries across Texas. To date, more than $3 million has been granted to Texas libraries to expand their collections.

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 you, plus one guest, priority line access at designated Festival Friends Pass sessions and signings. Festival Friends Passes will be mailed up to one week before the Festival, along with your thank you letter. After that, Festival Friends Passes will be available for pick up in the Texas Book Festival Store on 11th Street and Colorado during Festival Weekend on October 27-28, 2018.
