Kick off summer with a festival of books, authors and reading on every floor of the Central Library at 1515 Young Street in Downtown Dallas. Listen to writers talk about their work, discover a new author and learn about the publishing process from people who've done it. Plus, add to the community quilt in the mini quilt show and find the next great read in the Friends of the Dallas Public Library's Book Cellar.
While you're at the library, all ages can sign up for the Mayor's Summer Reading Challenge. Plus, teens can stick around after the festival to see local youth compete in the first Teen Rap Battle!
This event is made possible thanks to the Freda Gail Stern Fund of the Friends of the Dallas Public Library and Half Price Books.
