The Houston Literary Awards generously supports the Houston Public Library Foundation whose mission unites partners who value Lifelong Learning. Our sole focus is to connect charitable support to the essential programs offered through the Houston Public Library that improve local quality of life, including self-sustainability and employability. Library programs are free of charge to the public yet are not supported by local tax dollars. Your participation with the Houston Literary Awards contributes to the well-being of Houston.
Individual tickets are available online. Since this is a virtual experience, ticket prices are reduced to $100, and you will receive a charitable contribution receipt for 100% of the value.
