Fall for the Book is 23 Years Strong

We need your help to keep it that way

Thanks to your support, Fall for the Book was able to keep the festival going in this new, virtual space, as well as branching back out for an in-person Alumni event in October 2021. We brought international authors to your living room, created multimedia book events not to be missed, and featured local and national favorites. As we look toward 2022, we’re planning on keeping that same great digital content, but transitioning back to the well-loved, and well-missed in-person festival. We need your help to do this! 

As with many arts organizations around Northern Virginia and the country, Fall for the Book took a financial hit during the pandemic, losing 25% of our financial support. We’ve been grateful that although people have been under tighter budgets, they’ve still reached out to us and donated. But facing another year with limited resources, we need your help.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 over the next few months to help support the technology required to continue to bring high quality, free events right to your living room, and to return to hosting in-person events.
