For the second consecutive year Literacy Texas is excited to host a booth at the Texas Book Festival. This year’s festival will take place on Saturday, November 4th and Sunday, November 5th. With over 250 authors, including Tom Hanks and Dan Rather, and thousands of attendees, this is a great opportunity to share the message that every Texan deserves to read!
Literacy Texas will need a few volunteers to help us manage our booth. Volunteering is a breeze and will mainly consist of setting up and tearing down the booth, selling t-shirts, handing out comic books, and most importantly, sharing information about Literacy Texas. There will always be a staff member on hand to help out with any questions and each volunteer gets snacks throughout their shift and a free t-shirt! We can customize shifts to fit your schedule so you’ll have plenty of time to check out all of the exhibits and vendors. Plus, you never know who might stop by the booth. If you’re interested in volunteering please complete this form.
Texas Book Festival began in 1996 and celebrates literature and literacy by connecting readers to new and established authors.
