Dear Patron of the Arts,
Would you like to meet famous authors?
The 2017 Dahlonega Literary Festival will be held March 26th and 27th and will include panel discussions, presentations, and book signings. All of these events are free and open to the public.
The Dahlonega Literary Festival is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Ours is an intimate festival about books and authors. Our mission is to promote interaction between readers and writers in a relaxed, informal environment so those attending have an opportunity to meet and interact with the authors. In addition to attending speaking events and book signings, attendees have the opportunity to have lunch with their favorite authors at a local restaurant or attend our dinner extravaganza on Saturday.
Our 2016 Author Selection Committee scheduled the following authors for our previous event: Joshilyn Jackson, Karen Abbott, Delilah S. Dawson, Ann Hite, and many more. This year’s line-up should be just as wonderful! We hope you will come to see your favorite authors and meet others you may be unfamiliar with.
As you can imagine, festival expenses add up quickly, and we need your financial support to make our event a success. Your tax-deductible contribution will help with fees, travel expenses and lodging for the authors, and aids in ensuring most festival events remain free-of-charge. As a patron, you will receive the benefits listed on the enclosed Patron Response Form. Most importantly, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you have preserved and advanced the literary arts in Dahlonega.
We would appreciate the return of the Patron Response Form and your contribution or can donate at any time by using PayPal using the email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions, please contact any of us at the email addresses listed below.
Thank you, in advance, for your support. We look forward to seeing you in March!
