2021 Sponsors & Friends

Thank you!

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors and donors, the Deep Valley Book Festival continues to promote literature and literacy in Southern Minnesota. Your financial support helps keep the festival FREE! The festival is organized by an all-volunteer committee of local writers, publishers, and book lovers.​ The festival however, is not free to produce and we depend on generous donors like you.
