TEXAS—Texas Authors will span the state for a weekend of book signings and readings in bookstores, grocery stores, libraries and schools to showcase their individual and collective talents as storytellers in all genres.
This third event is expected to be the largest yet, with up to 250 authors presenting their works across the state. Bookstore giant, Barnes & Noble, as well as 30 plus indie bookstores will host authors throughout the weekend. In addition select Kroger’s grocery stores, and other locations will also spotlight our great Texas talent.
DEAR Texas is established with the mandate of encouraging people of all ages to read more and rediscover the fun, excitement and joy associated with learning new things through the pages of books. This has been the driving force of the organization and has yielded numerous fruits since its inception.
In addition to the DEAR Texas event, the organization has donated books valuing at over $20,000 to schools and libraries during the past two years. They also created the Super Readers, four loveable characters, who show children and adults that through reading, they too can become their own Super Hero.
To learn more about participating authors and where they will be for this event, please visit the organizations web site at http://DearTexas.info. DEAR Texas graciously accepts donations for its literacy program that helps get books into the hands of those in need, plus schools and libraries.
