Description: 

A library pen or coffee mug is a nice token of appreciation, but won't pay the bills for a visiting author or for the library. In this session, we will discuss how and why to cover costs for literary events without using up the artist’s goodwill or library budget. We will explore when and why to fund author events, how to estimate costs, and review relevant grants and their application processes.
Learning objectives:

  • Understand when and why to fund author events and estimate costs
  • Become familiar with relevant grants and their application processes
  • Come away with ideas to partner within your community or region.
