Dallas Is Lit! Book & Author Fair

May 18 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm CDT

The book fair is back, and we’ve added a chance to meet local authors, too! Just like last year, we’ve got bookstores, art printers, maker suppliers, and other members of the literary community from around the neighborhood and beyond joining us on the Turner House lawn. Inside, individual authors will fill the house with opportunities for you to buy a book and get it signed. Plus, get your raffle tickets for a chance to win some great prizes donated by great local businesses we love. Bring your book fair money and we’ll see you on the lawn!


We’re still taking applications and adding new vendors every day! Please email [email protected] for vendor information.
