McAllen Public Library is kicking off its fifth annual book festival with an exciting name change: South Texas Book Festival.
Formerly known as McAllen Book Festival, South Texas Book Festival will take place on November 10, 2018. South Texas Book Festival will kick off with weeklong festivities including activities from Friday, October 5th to Tuesday, October 9th to celebrate this year’s festival.
Held in the award-winning McAllen Public Library, the South Texas Book Festival will foster wider appeal across South Texas and the rest of the state. Attendees will enjoy multiple storytimes, author sessions, book talks, activities, presentations, books giveaways, free cotton candy and popcorn, and more.
“The change to South Texas Book Festival more accurately describes our expanded reach. Families from all over South Texas attend our event, which features the best in children’s and teens’ authors and fun activities for the whole family,” said Kate Horan, McAllen Public Library Director.
Along with the new name, South Texas Book Festival has a new logo. The logo features bright colors to represent the book festival’s audience, children and teens, and a star icon to represent the state of Texas.
