The Book Festival is one epic day of literary “edu-tainment” each year. The Get Lit Author Series helps SABF stay relevant throughout the year. Get Lit events feature an author in conversation with a respected figure in the San Antonio community. In line with SABF’s mission of celebrating literary culture and offering literary programming to the general public, Get Lit events are free and open to all.
SABF’s inaugural Get Lit event was with novelist Paulette Jiles, author of News of the World, in December 2016. Other Get Lit events have featured authors Stephanie Elizondo Griest (All the Agents and Saints), Mark Bittman (How to Cook Everything Vegetarian), and Julián Castro (An Unlikely Journey). Sign up for the Book Festival newsletter to receive updates on upcoming Get Lit events.
