Sponsors and Donors

Our growing community of friends and neighbors

We’re pleased that the Sonoma Valley Authors Festival has become a must-do event for so many friends, new and old. 

We thank our generous individual donors as well as our Foundation and Corporate sponsors. The Sonoma Valley Authors Festival would not happen without their support.

“The Authors Festival was original, energetic, thoughtfully composed, and generous of spirit. We enjoyed and learned from our time both as speakers and as audience. Thank you, Sonoma Valley”.
