Double Your Dollar This Month

Become a literary champion and fuel creative minds

As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we are thrilled to re-introduce our “Double Your Dollar” campaign, which allows you to make an even greater contribution to our festival. Every dollar donated during the month of August will be matched, up to $5,000 – providing much needed support to run our beloved and free-to-the-public festival.

We rely on financial contributions to promote, produce, and staff the festival, as well as bring in authors from around the nation. This is where your generous support comes in. By participating in our “Double Your Dollar” campaign, your donation will have twice the impact.
