San Antonio Book Festival presents The Moth Mainstage at Majestic Theatre The San Antonio Book Festival (SABF) brings back the popular storytelling showcase The Moth Mainstage to the Majestic Theatre (224 E. Houston St.) on Friday, April 6, 2018 at 7PM as part of the 6th annual Book Festival weekend. Tickets are on sale now.

All tickets subject to applicable service charges and fees.

The Moth is a national not-for-profit organization that has presented more than 30,000 real stories through live storytelling since its inception in 1997. The Mainstage event is the Moth's flagship program. Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the five storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.

"At the Book Festival we celebrate stories written in books," said Katy Flato, SABF's Executive Director. "On The Moth stage, stories are celebrated through the age-old tradition of raconteurs. That's what makes The Moth Mainstage a perfect event for the Book Festival to showcase. We are both celebrating the ability of stories to bring us together."

The Moth has shows in nearly 30 cities; The Moth Radio Hour airs on more than 460 stations; and the podcast is downloaded more than 47 million times a year. But the ideal way to experience The Moth is live and in person. The visceral dialogue between the audience and the storyteller results in an electric, entertaining, and enlightening experience.

SABF celebrates national and local authors and their contributions to the culture of literacy, ideas, and imagination. The 6th annual SABF takes place Saturday, April 7, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The free, daylong event is a gift to visitors and the citizens of San Antonio, bringing books to life through author presentations, innovative panel discussions, and book sales and signings. Also included in this fun day of literary entertainment are family activities such as children's theater performances, a technology area, interactive play and art stations, and a selection of the city's famous food trucks. SABF offers learning experiences for readers of all ages and interests. SABF is the signature program of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation. SABF's founding partners are the Central Library, the Southwest School of Art, and the Texas Book Festival.
