In just four years, we have been thrilled to see the impact the Sonoma Valley Authors Festival has made in the Sonoma Community: 7,100 middle school and high school students have explored new ideas in person with our award-winning writers and thought leaders, and received over 11,000 books all paid for with private funds, written by the presenting authors.  Festival attendees have learned from over 100 world-class authors discussing a myriad of topics and various disciplines.  In addition, over 1,600 Sonoma County citizens have participated in Authors on the Plaza, our free, family-friendly, community event on the historic Sonoma town square.

Your Impact By The Numbers

In 3 years of holding the Festival in-person:

7,000+ students

have explored new ideas in person with our award-winning writers and thought leaders

11,000+ books

written by the presenting authors have been given to students, all paid for with private funds

100+ world-class authors & speakers

have discussed a myriad of topics and various disciplines

1,100+ Sonoma County citizens

have participated in Authors on the Plaza, our free, family-friendly, community event on the historic Sonoma town square

None of this would have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors and donors. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we could not bring you the annual Sonoma Valley Authors Festival, Students Day, and Authors on the Plaza events without your contributions. Thank you!
