The Fox Cities Book Festival is offering a way for its enthusiasts to participate in the post-Thanksgiving global generosity movement GivingTuesday as a fundraiser to support the fest.

Its goal: for 100 people to donate $22 on GivingTuesday – Nov. 30 – to set the stage for the book festival’s work in 2022.

“We are thankful for everyone who has and will donate to the Fox Cities Book Festival,” said Fox Cities Book Festival Board President Aubrey Laux. “The Fox Cities Book Festival looks forward to planning a year of programs that will connect writers and readers in 2022. All donations make these upcoming in-person events possible.”

A one-time gift fundraiser will run on the book festival’s Facebook page: Fox Cities Book Festival.

Another option is to donate through the book festival’s website at

Alternatively, send cash or check contributions to:

Fox Cities Book Festival
P. O. Box 1014
Appleton, WI  54912

Gifts that funnel through the book festival’s Facebook page and website will show up instantly, while cash and check donation tallies will take longer to appear in the fundraising total.
