Texas Book Festival Sponsorship Opportunities

Buy a table at our annual black-tie gala fundraiser, attended by politicos, authors, and the Texas philanthropic community. The 2018 First Edition Literary Gala will be held Friday, October 26 at the Four Seasons Austin. We are accepting donations for the silent auction.

Donate Online. Hundreds of individuals support the Texas Book Festival with an annual gift. A gift in any amount makes a difference. 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 the donor, plus one guest, priority line access at designated Festival Friends Pass sessions and signings.

Please contact Development Manager Claire Burrows with any donation, Gala, and organization questions at claire@texasbookfestival.org or 512-477-4055.
