Mic & Pen


The Mic - to share their perspective, ideas and stories with festival audiences at live events. 

The Pen - to personally connect with avid readers who line up to meet their literary heroes and have their stacks of treasured books signed. 

Through a tax-deductible gift of $250* join our collective of passionate philanthropists whose support is as essential to the festival as the Mic & Pen.

Why $250? Your gift will cover the cost of an artist’s speaker fee for next year’s Festival.
