July 29th Dinner starts with a 7 Pm Reception and dinner starting at 8 PM.  Keynote event with Dr. Natalie Forest Success Revolutions: The Hidden Power of Patterns

Since 2012, Texas Authors, Inc., has held a dinner to honor the award winners from their annual book contest. At first, the dinners were held in small comfortable restaurants, but have grown to a nice gala with close to 100 people attending.

The 2017 gala for book winners is expected to be one of the largest dinners yet for Texas Authors, with over 40 book award winners invited to attend. As with the past two years, the dinner is also a fundraiser for DEAR Texas Literacy programs and for the Texas Authors Institute of History Museum. Therefore, there are no refunds on dinner tickets.

A reception will kick off the evening where the winning authors will be able to take pictures with family and friends. 

A dinner will follow, which will include a wonderful meal that the committee has selected from the North Marriott’s fine line of delicious foods. Many of the meals have already been tested by Alan personally to help choose only the finest selection for the attendees.


With last year setting the new standard, a guest speaker will be introduced following the awards ceremony for the authors. Those interested in staying for the presentation will receive valuable information about marketing their book(s).


With each passing year, Texas Authors has continued to grow and create a wonderful event to celebrate the art of writing and being published. This year’s event will be no exception!


Dinner tickets start at $75 per person.  However, for those who are attending the Authors Marketing Event that weekend, their dinner ticket is already included.


Below is information on how to order dinner tickets. Your receipt is all you will need to show at time of arrival.
