First Edition Literary Gala

Texas Book Festival’s Annual Fundraiser

The Texas Book Festival is delighted to announce the 27th annual First Edition Literary Gala on Friday, November 4, 2022 at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Austin. Please join us for an evening dedicated to celebrating books, authors, and literacy featuring an unforgettable line-up of literary luminaries from 2022. 

Gala sponsorships fund wide and free access to our Annual Festival in the fall, our year-round Reading Rock Stars and Real Reads programs, which provide author visits and book donations to students in Title I schools, grants to Texas public libraries across the state, and free literary programming throughout the year.
