First Edition Literary Gala

Texas Book Festival’s Annual Fundraiser

Thank you to the sponsors, authors, and many guests who joined us on November 4, 2022 at 6:30pm at the Fairmont Hotel for an evening dedicated to celebrating books, authors, and literacy.

Gala sponsorships, paddle donations, and auction purchases 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.
