Reading Rock Stars
Texas Book Festival

Austin, TX      Arts


The Texas Book Festival celebrates authors and their contributions to the culture of literacy, ideas, and imagination.

Reading Rock Stars is a dynamic program in which selected authors from across the country are invited to present their works to students in economically-disadvantaged public schools. At the end of the presentations, each child receives an autographed copy of the book, and a set of books is also given to the school library. 

Since its inception, our Reading Rock Stars program has given over 70,000 books and brought hundreds of authors to meet students in low income schools across Texas.

This RoomFunding Project will help bring the Reading Rock Stars program to 1,900 children.

Why We Like This Project

I loved reading books as a child. They provide a great way to fuel a child's imagination. Reading Rock Stars brings authors to schools that might otherwise not be able to bring them there. My favorite part is that the children get a signed book at the end of the presentation.
