For the first time ever, the San Antonio Book Festival will take place entirely online. Featuring three full days of free virtual programming, the 2021 Festival will bring together thousands of readers and writers across Texas, the U.S., and beyond for engaging, enlightening, and educational programming.

The family-friendly event showcases both first-time and established, prominent writers, introducing attendees to new and well-known literary talents and connecting them with their favorite authors. The 2021 Festival will feature more than 75 local, regional, and national authors participating in virtual sessions, including programming for adults, young adults, middle-grade readers, and children.

Headlining authors will include Walter Isaacson, author of The Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, the Future of the Human Race; Kristin Hannah, who will discuss her novel The Four Winds, a story set in Texas during the Great Depression about love, heroism and hope; and Sandra Cisneros, who will debut a new festival event, Sandra Cisneros Presents, where she introduces four of her favorite writers to festival audiences.
