The 13th Annual Dallas Book Festival will be held Saturday, April 7, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library, 1515 Young Street, across from Dallas City Hall. Here are details:

The festival is presented by the Dallas Public Library, which was founded in 1901 and now comprises 29 branches, and Friends of the Dallas Public Library, a nonprofit organization that raises financial support and public awareness for the library system.

Guests will include nationally and locally prominent authors spanning every genre of literature and appealing to every interest and age range. Previous Dallas Book Festivals have welcomed National Book Award winners, Pulitzer Prize winners, Newbery and Caldecott medal winners, and rising stars in the literary world.

Dozens of events will fill all eight floors of the library, including lectures, panels, book sales and signings, readings, art and writing workshops, dance and music performances, and children’s activities.
