The Wisconsin Book Festival is hosted by Madison Public Library in partnership with the Madison Public Library Foundation. Festival sponsors make this event possible through their private support. We’d like to thank our 2023 Wisconsin Book Festival sponsors for their generosity and dedication to the sharing of ideas.

The Wisconsin Book Festival is made possible through the generosity of many sponsors. Private funds raised by the Madison Public Library Foundation contribute over $100,000 to the festival annually. Sponsor benefits include logo recognition, VIP seating and invitations, access to authors, and more. For more information about becoming a sponsor for the festival contact Conor Moran, Madison Public Library Foundation Executive Director, at cmoran@mplfoundation.org
