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

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.
