The San Antonio Book Festival celebrates national and local authors and their contributions to the culture of literacy, ideas, and imagination. The free, daylong event is a gift to visitors and the citizens of San Antonio, bringing books to life through author presentations, innovative panel discussions, and book sales and signings. Also included in this fun day of literary entertainment are family activities such as children’s theater performances, a technology area, interactive play and art stations, and a selection of the city’s famous food trucks. SABF, which generates more than $1 million for the city’s economy, is the signature program of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation.
SABF has a Governing Board, Advisory Committee, and Event Planning Committee, which consists of over 40 Volunteer Chairs who oversee 500+ volunteers who help at the Festival. SABF, the signature program of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation (SAPLF), was first presented in April 2013 with the Texas Book Festival, the Central Library, and the Southwest School of Art as founding partners. A free, open, and all-day event, the Book Festival currently features over 90 national, regional, local and emerging authors and welcomes more than 18,000 visitors.
Many thanks to the generous sponsors of the 5th annual Book Festival, whose support helps San Antonio grow as a literary destination, strengthens our vibrant literary community, and makes the literary world accessible to all. We hope that you will join us on Saturday, April 7th!
At Oxford at Sonterra Apartments in San Antonio, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
