Do you like surprises?

Dear Brooklyn Book Festival Friends,

The Brooklyn Book Festival’s spirited author discussions and readings, and Literary Marketplace, with unique booksellers and publishers from across the country, make it the city’s biggest literary celebration and a paradise for readers. And its free!

But even paradise has expenses— staff, technical production, printing, and program guides —and we need your help. Please join the Brooklyn Book Festival’s end of year Giving Campaign.

Do you love surprises?
Support the festival with a contribution of $100 or more and as a thank you we will send you a Brooklyn Book Festival tote bag and the festival organizers’ choice of book from one of the many outstanding authors we presented this year.

For $50, receive the 2016 art poster created for the festival by inimitable, iconic graphic designer Chip Kidd—signed by the artist.

Or, perhaps a $17 contribution to start the 2017 season’s work… all contributions will help BKBF thrive. We need your support and your generosity is greatly appreciated. You can contribute securely online

Please send checks to:
Brooklyn Book Festival
249 Smith Street, #106

Last year, we presented authors from all over the world including Margaret Atwood, Nicole Dennis-Benn, Chester Brown, Pete Hamill, Margo Jefferson, Okey Ndibe, Joyce Carol Oates, Salman Rushdie, Jacqueline Woodson, and hundreds of others. Your support will help us present another fabulous festival in 2017!

Best wishes for the holidays,
