San Antonio African American Book Festival (SAAABF)

The Friends of Carver Library created the San Antonio African American Book Festival to introduce and highlight our local African American Authors.

The 1st Annual SAAABF was held on February 8, 2020 and was an extremely successful event featuring over 20 Authors, 100's of Community Members and a few Local Elected Officials. The Friends of Carver will host this event on an annual basis and hope to include African American Authors from all over Texas and beyond.
