Save the Date for the San Antonio Book Festival

We are thrilled to present the 3rd Annual San Antonio Book Festival!  The SABF team has worked diligently to present new and exciting Festival events this year!

SABF’S 1ST LITERARY FEAST: On Friday, April 10th, the night before the Festival, authorsNaomi Shihab Nye and Lawrence Wright will be featured at a special salon-style dinner at The Argyle Club, hosted by Ann Ash to benefit SABF. The moderator is Dan Goodgame, whose former experience as a newspaper correspondent in the Middle East will help lead the evening’s conversation, which will center on the changing dialogue of peace in the Middle East. There are a limited number of seats available; for more information, please call

Brianna at 210/225-4728, ext. 16.

SABF’s 1st film screening: All About the Groove is a feature-length documentary about San Antonio native Doug Sahm, master of Tex-Mex roots-rock music. After the film’s presentation at the Festival—the first in San Antonio—there will be a Q&A with author, music journalist and the film’s director, Joe Nick Patoski.

SABF’s 1st Pitchapalooza: The brainchild of Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry, cofounders of The Book Doctors, Pitchapalooza grants twenty writers the opportunity to pitch a book idea to a panel of judges. Contestants will have one minute to present their pitches, then will receive critique from the judges. “Everyone has an idea for a book, but Pitchapalooza lets those ideas compete, with the winner getting the chance to present his or her idea to literary agents,” says SABF Literary Director Clay Smith. “It’s a lot of fun for the audience and meaningful for the participants.”
