We have passed the halfway mark in raising funds for the Festival

logoWe launched our donation drive on Saturday, and we have already raised more than half of what we need for the 2016 Millbrook Literary Festival.   We  should meet our goal soon, and then we will start expanding our plans to include more support for authors and more outreach programs. Can we raise an extra $2,000?  Thank you supporters!

If you haven’t sent in your donation yet, please do so now.

This year the Dactyl Foundation is helping raise money for programming and outreach by accepting your tax-deductible donations, 100% of which will go directly to pay for Festival expenses. Donations can be made by sending a check payable to “Dactyl Foundation,” with “Millbrook Literary Festival” in the memo section, to Millbrook Literary Festival, P.O. Box 1349, Millbrook NY 12545.  Or by clicking on the donate button.

Meet Sam Falk, Millbrook Literary Festival Chair

The Millbrook Literary Festival is entirely run by volunteers. This is the first in our series of posts introducing you to these dedicated individuals.

Sam Falk has been chairing the Millbrook Literary Festival for three years and began working with the Festival a few years before that when she was recruited by Scott Meyer after walking into Merritt Bookstore one day. She is indebted to him for introducing her to the literary world. Sam’s day job is teaching chemistry at Arlington High School. She also advises the school newspaper (The Arlingtonian) and is the Communications Chair for her local teacher’s union, the ATA. In addition, she is a member of the Friends of Millbrook Library. She lives in Millbrook and can be reached at info@millbrookliteraryfestival.org.
