It’s an incredible opportunity to have access to such prominent writers, and I know our community will be thrilled with the [NBF Presents] programming we are able to offer.

NBF Presents programs bring National Book Award–honored authors and nationally recognized moderators to libraries, colleges, book festivals, and performance venues for public readings, discussions, and presentations. NBF Presents is designed to give audiences—whether in urban, suburban, or rural communities—access to some of our country’s most renowned writers and their books and to create spaces where authors and audiences can connect, be in dialogue, and share ideas.

The National Book Foundation aims to reach readers everywhere, and to be a catalyst for conversations through great books.

NBF Presents is made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
