True to the magnanimous spirit of founder Scott Meyer, the Festival is dedicated to engaging the local community, sharing the love of books, and encouraging writers of all ages.
The Festival has been organized with minimum expense since its inception in 2008. A group of resourceful volunteers do all the work; Millbrook Library provides the venue for the presentations; Merritt Bookstore arranges for the availability of books by participating authors and processes all book sales.
In addition, we are pleased to announce that the Millbrook Literary Festival is now officially recognized as a public charity with tax exempt status under section 501(c)3 of the United States Internal Revenue Code. Your contributions to the Festival are now tax deductible, retroactive to February 8, 2017. We are excited about the opportunities for continued support that 501(c)3 status brings to our organization.
The Festival’s mission is to attract nationally recognized and aspiring authors, nurture writing and reading programs for young people, and broaden our reach to the community. There are three important ways you can support the Festival:
– by attending author readings and panels throughout the day
– by volunteering your time
– by making a tax-deductible donation
Thank you to all the authors, volunteers and members of the community who have helped foster this tradition. We look forward to greeting you on May 18, 2019, at the Millbrook Literary Festival!
The 2019 Millbrook Literary Festival has been made possible, in part, by funds received from:
The Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson
