Book Shows and Events

The Texas Booksellers Association sponsors a number of book shows throughout the state to cultivate interest in literature, in book collecting, and in the written word.

We are proud to have very diverse shows that include exhibitors in most genres, and participation from international members. We welcome book dealers, ephemera dealers, publishers, authors, postcard dealers, book binders, libraries, auction houses, appraisers, and more. If you are interested in selling or displaying your inventory or collection, please contact us.

Our latest event is the Houston Book Show planned for May 2018, and we have upcoming announcements about new venues for our long standing Austin and North Texas shows.
