Building Community Through the Arts

Sponsor Donations Help Us Get the Festival of Books Off the Ground

Volunteers already are accepting books, CDs and DVDs, and skillfully sorting them for easy browsing. Bargains will abound. Even volumes set aside in the Special Books Room – limited editions, signed copies, etc. – will be affordably priced. Memoirists, novelists and biographers will read in the tent, and children will visit with popular character Froggy, a fun and friendly fellow.

But the Festival of Books is more than a gathering of readers in search of bargains or insights from authors. The annual Labor Day weekend event is a major fundraiser for the Spencertown Academy Arts Center. The Academy derives the majority of its operating expenses from the Festival, other signature events, memberships and donations.

You can make a difference with a dedicated donation to help underwrite the event’s expenses. To make your tax-deductible donation to support the Festival of Books, register online or mail a check to PO Box 80, Spencertown, NY 12165 (A list of sponsors will be posted at the Festival.) Your generosity will help make the 14th Festival of Books a success.

Choose from one of these support levels:

$25 – Best Seller
$50 – A Classic
$100 – Collector’s Copy
$250 – Rare Book
$500 – First Edition

Upwards of 2,000 people will again make the Festival of Books the centerpiece of their send-off to summer. Come celebrate all things literary with them, and if you can, help ensure its continuance with a donation.
