Texas Book Festival Announces 2019 Dates


Pencil it in.  For its 24th year, the Texas Book Festival will be held October 26 – 27, 2019. And once again, it will be staged in and around the Texas State Capitol in downtown Austin.

An estimated 50,000 attend last year’s fest. Also in 2018, the TBF gave more than $100,000 in grants to Texas public libraries. Through its Reading Rock Stars literacy program, TBF provided 10,635 books to students in Title I schools across Texas.
