A Celebration of Local Authors

Join us for the inaugural Greater Austin Book Fest at the Central Library! GAB Fest provides a valuable opportunity for authors, illustrators, and readers from Hays, Williamson, and Travis Counties to establish meaningful connections and engage with their community. This event fosters an environment of inclusivity, encouraging individuals to come together and celebrate their appreciation for literature. Meet the 80+ participating authors, get your books signed, shop with local booksellers, explore the Central Library, and enjoy a full day of panels, workshops, and programs.
