The 2015 Book Festival has come to a close. We hope you were able to attend an author event or two or three and that you enjoyed yourself.

The Committee extends its thanks to all the people who make this enormous undertaking possible—especially the volunteers, the sponsors, the venues, and the authors themselves.

We thank the Community Foundation of the Fox Valley Region and the Neuroscience Group for their continued and substantial financial support of the festival.

Our many other sponsors as well as individual donors can and do make a difference to the festival, ensuring its presence in our community.

Finally, we would like to recognize Ellen Kort, who had the vision, and the determination, to create a book festival in the Fox Cities area. Ellen passed away during this year’s festival, but her celebration of words and of community continues on.

Until next time, keep on reading and writing and sharing....
