This free, two-day long event connects authors and readers through a celebration of literacy, creativity, and stories! From the tiniest of tots to the experienced reader, from YA fiction to crime thriller (and everything in between), this festival highlights the thriving author culture deeply rooted in the South Plains!
Last year, we had over 60 authors in attendance, most of them from the West Texas area. This year, we plan to double down on that momentum by bringing you more authors, engaging panels, chummy book signings, educational writing workshops, and delightful family-fun crafts and activities.
This event also functions as a fundraiser for Literacy Lubbocks educational programs. Our mission is to change lives through literacy, one person at a time. Please, help us fight back against Lubbock Countys 13% illiteracy rate by attending!
