Mission & History

Our Mission

The San Antonio Book Festival unites readers and writers in a celebration of ideas, books, libraries, and literary culture.

Our History

The inaugural San Antonio Book Festival was presented in April 2013 as a program of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation (SAPLF) 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 features over 110 national, regional, local and emerging authors and welcomes more than 20,000 visitors. In December 2019 the San Antonio Book Festival, LLC was merged into a new nonprofit corporation and the Book Festival separated from the Library Foundation.
