Friend Membership


By becoming a Friend, you support our events and mission through a minimal contribution with big payoffs. Buy a membership for yourself and your family or give the gift of membership.

  • Purchase tickets to events a week before the general public
  • Invitations to special events and author receptions
  • Opportunities to learn about new author guests before the general public
  • And of course, the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference to young writers through your membership contribution

Friend Membership (Single) – $50/year, purchase up to 2 tickets/event during advance purchase weeks
Family Membership – $100/year, purchase up to 4 tickets/event during advance purchase weeks

How long does my membership last?
For one year from the date you join.

If I’m not a Friend yet, can I still purchase tickets during advance purchase weeks? As long as you become a Friend during the advance purchase week, you can buy your tickets during that week. You can become a Friend at the same time you purchase your tickets.
