Why I Support

I love and support Unbound books because the Festival has demonstrated a strong commitment to and ability to bring a dizzying variety and number of sublime authors to our town and to offer attendance for free. FREE! It is a true community jewel.

What I’m Doing

I promise not to make you come to a fundraising event if you will just donate some moolah voluntarily. And, of course, I am more than happy to meet book lovers for wine and book chat and isn't that so much nicer than a stuffy old fundraiser?!?!

Unbound Book Festival

What We Do

We produce and promote a literary festival in Columbia, where nationally-recognized and bestselling authors and poets come to discuss their work and participate in a variety of interactive programs. This day-long event is free to the public.

Why We're Great

There are no other literary festivals in Missouri of the national scope and ambition of the Unbound Book Festival. Plus, we are 100% volunteer run--by the community, for the community!

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We believe that books should be for everyone. We will raise awareness of the literary arts, celebrate books, and encourage a love of reading for all ages--and the festival is completely free to the public.
