Sponsors & Partners

Engage Readers, Writers and More

Sponsoring the Minnesota Book Awards is a great way to engage readers, writers, judges, librarians, publishers and booksellers of our state.  Sponsorships range from a table at the awards ceremony to naming sponsor of all year-round programming. As with all partnerships at The Friends, we seek to find a win-win agreement that allows a sponsor to maximize their investment through entertaining clients, traditional and social media, and targeting specific audience segments.
