Sonoma County Book Festival on Kickstarter

The organizers of the Sonoma County Book Festival hope to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter this month to finance a bigger and better festival this year.

We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think? Here’s more about the project: ”

The 2013 Book Festival on Saturday, September 21, is moving to the outdoor courtyard at the Santa Rosa Junior College in Santa  Rosa so all of the Festival offerings are in one spot (and it’s a beautiful spot!).  We are partnering with our local independent bookseller, Copperfield’s Books, to bring an amazing line-up of nationally acclaimed authors while still showcasing our wonderful local authors. We’ll continue to provide presentations, workshops, and a slew of children’s activities in an all-day event that you won’t want to miss and that will remain absolutely FREE.

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
