2016 Texas Author Advocate Award

Laura Bush

The Texas Authors Institute of History takes great pride in acknowledging Laura Bush as an Author Advocate for Texas Authors. Serving as the First Lady of Texas from 1995 to 2000, her notable contributions include the establishment of the Texas Book Festival. This initiative has not only provided authors with a platform to garner recognition from Texas readers but has also raised substantial funds to bolster Texas libraries.
