A quartet of popular authors with intriguing stories to tell - Michael Connelly, Philipp Meyer, Ellie LeBlond Sosa and Michelle Staubach Grimes - will headline the 17th annual Dallas-Fort Worth Celebration of Reading.

The always lively and entertaining program will feature the four authors sharing personal anecdotes and reading from their most recent works. Additionally, a tribute to founder former First Lady Barbara Bush, who launched the Foundation in 1989 and raised millions of dollars for family literacy programs across America, will be made. Former First Lady Laura Bush is the honorary chair of this year’s event, and Brill Garrett, wife of Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett and a passionate advocate for making a difference in the lives of children, is the event chair.
