Community Impact

Join us in our mission to stimulate the minds and nurture the souls of readers and students!

In just seven years, we have been thrilled to see the impact the Sonoma Valley Authors Festival has made in the Sonoma Community.

Authors Festival

175+ world class authors and speakers have discussed a variety of topics and various disciplines

2,375 attendees have participated

Students Day

12,500+ students have explored new ideas in person with our award-winning writers and thought leaders

17,515+ books written by the presenting authors have been given to students, all paid for with private funds

Authors on the plaza

4,200+ North Bay Citizens have participated in Authors on the Plaza, our free, family-friendly, community event on the historic Sonoma town square.

3,630+ books have been given free to the attendees


Virtual Festival

6,500+ individuals worldwide have benefitted

17,000+ presentations have been viewed

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!

We would be honored to have your help in bringing the Sonoma Valley Author Festival to Sonoma!
