Here's Where You Come In

Readers are some of the most diverse and engaged members of any community. A 2016 Pew study found that 73% of the population read at least one book in the last year, a number consistent by race, gender, rural/urban, income level, generation, and education level. This is a dynamic and diverse audience that shares one thing:
an appreciation of the power of story.


There will be many more opportunities to participate as we get closer to launch, whether you’re an author, exhibitor/vendor, or you’re interested in volunteering. Keep watching for details!
