Raise your awareness of the transformative power of literacy, visit authors and take part in family-friendly activities at the second annual Fort Worth BookFest,from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Oct. 20 at Tarrant County College’s Trinity River Campus, 300 Trinity Campus Circle.

Activities include a parade of characters, Nuestros Cuentos/Our Stories, spoken word competition, author presentations and more.

Additionally, the City of Fort Worth Human Relations Commission will host a screening of American Denial as part of its Movies That Matter film program. The hour-long film begins at 4 p.m. and explores how we assiduously blind ourselves to recognizing racial injustices — unconscious bias, bigotry, prejudice and their long, dark consequences — and examine the ways in which we deny or rationalize biases and practices that violate our bedrock beliefs and the historic and contemporary consequences of that denial. A facilitated community conversations will follow the film.

All activities at BookFest are free and family-friendly.


I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 32 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard.I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".Contact me directly at lee@leeeverton.com for scheduling information.
