Every Texas Book Festival, we invite our Members to join us at our booth as an opportunity to sign and promote their books. This year, we wanted to still provide that opportunity despite moving online! Below is an exhibition of our own, filled with Members of ours who had a book published between the last in-person TBF (in 2019!) and now.
Take a look through, and if you’re interested in a book, click its cover!
