Sponsors & Donors

Our growing community of friends and neighbors

The Sonoma Valley Authors Festival is grateful for the generous support of our Sponsors, Corporate Contributors, and Donors, including those who fund

“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”.
