Bigger and Better Than a Book Fair

The McAllen Book Festival is a giant book fair full of craft vendors, food trucks, outdoor activities and live music. Booksellers and vendors will be selling literary/book themed products such as journals, stationaries, pens/writing instruments, jewelry and much more.

This all-day event is scheduled to feature 24 authors and poets, all of whom have been recognized nationally and locally. For a full, detailed list of authors attending, check out the McAllen Book Festival’s Facebook page. Who knows, maybe one of your favorite authors will be attending!

About the Festival

This festival is the premier celebration of children and teen literacy in the Rio Grande Valley and hopes to link readers of all ages. Hoping to promote literacy and the City of McAllen, those coordinating the event wish to solidify the fact that the McAllen Public Library is a place where people and ideas can meet and connect.

The event drew more than 1,500 visitors last year and those in charge hope to double that number this year. Along with being able to meet critically-acclaimed authors, visitors can expect panel discussions, book signings and selected readings. Schedules will be posted so guests can plan their day accordingly.
