As soon as we wrap up one Festival, we start planning the following year’s: making sure it’ll be better, more diverse, more in sync with the issues you care about. That means booking top-notch authors far in advance, covering travel and lodging for in-demand writers who aren’t local, securing coveted venues, and coordinating the most thoughtful panels, sessions, and round-tables to showcase all this brilliance.
At a time when it seems like everything—even culture—is a luxury item, we’re committed to keeping our world-class programming free or affordably priced.
We’re also passionate about empowering local kids and teens—a whole new generation of readers and writers—with year-round initiatives, like bringing writers into schools, and collaborating with amazing nonprofits serving our community’s youth.
We Can’t Do All This Without Your Generosity.
