LOVE WHAT WE DO?
WANT TO LOVE IT EVEN MORE?
BE A FRIEND OF THE FESTIVAL
The Festival creates a one-of-a-kind experience: a joyful immersion in books, bringing together thousands of people from every part of the Bay Area.
Do you love that experience as much as we love making it? Are you interested in special benefits that’ll make you love it even more? If yes, become a Friend of the Festival.
What do I get as a Friend of the Festival?
The Friends is a circle of people who help make a free, world-class Festival possible. We show appreciation by offering thank-you gifts at each level of giving, including:
- Shorter lines so you won’t miss your favorite authors (several events last year reached capacity fast, so this perk is a game changer)
- Tickets to evening headliner programs (past headliners have included Joan Baez and W. Kamau Bell)
- Invites to our kickoff (and kickass) Authors Party the night before Fest weekend
