The First Edition Literary Gala

Texas Book Festival’s Annual Fundraiser

TBF is looking forward to returning to the Four Seasons for the 2021 First Edition Literary Gala which has been postponed to Friday, February 11, 2022.  It will be an evening among literary luminaries, dignitaries, and cultural supporters that you won’t want to miss. 

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 low-income schools, grants to Texas public libraries across the state, and free literary programming throughout the year. 

As of August 30, all of the table sponsorships and tickets have been purchased. If you are interested in a being placed on a wait list, please contact Susannah Auby at
