Award-winning Austin Author Sarah Bird

More about the BookSpring Heroes
Fun, Friends, and a Passion for Reading
BookSpring celebrates Literacy Heroes in our community. Over a dozen businesses and individuals have been selected over the years for this honorary award. The theme of our next event is “Books are a Lifeline,” and we can’t think of anything more appropriate. Stay tuned for more details.
For all of us, books are a connection to a wider world and a chance to escape our immediate surroundings. And at the same time, books give every child the skills they need to succeed in the future. Books are truly a lifeline — in so many ways. We hope you will join us for the 8th Annual Storybook Heroes Awards Luncheon — and ensure that every child in our community has access to the lifeline of books in their homes. Please make plans to join us! BookSpring builds early literacy in children and families through healthcare (Rx), education (Ed), and the community (Go). BookSpring is dedicated to making sure kids have books that will shape and change their lives.
