Author Visits and Book Signings

As the literary hub of Fort Worth, we're thrilled to bring authors from across the country to our great city. We strive to bring fiction and non-fiction authors alike to visit with our library patrons. 

Whenever possible, we will partner with local book sellers to make copies available for purchase and signatures.  We will also add copies of featured books into our collection for check-out either in print or digital.
