Literary Event Consultants

More than ever, the American populace is a mosaic of colors, creeds and cultures with increasing polarization. How cool would it be to bring people together to share a common interest that cuts across race, religion, socio-economics, sexual orientation, politics, and cultural identities? Some books can bridge our disparities, and it’s magical when it works. It’s our goal at Books In Common to help cities, schools, communities, and literary programs create events that appeal to the most diverse audience possible. We support efforts to develop a common good, where people can share a literary experience that transcends our differences.

Books In Common is an independent clearinghouse supporting Community Reads, All Campus Reads, Freshman Class Reading Programs, literary festivals, writers workshops, and more. Let us help you with your next literary event.
