One thing to bring is a sticker or stamp for the Great Reads from Great Places passports that kids will bring to you. Attached is an example of the stickers we used for WA the last time we were there in person – I put a pencil in the picture to give some context for scale. J

Hi—I am working on this very issue: How those in Humanities Councils (and other homes that are not state libraries) can get funding. Our funding for the NBF for states comes from IMLS, but they only fund states. I am looking for alternative ways to get this money to non-state library-based CFB affiliates.
What to bring to the festival? It is up to you. Items that highlight your state, especially its literary heritage. Books, book marks, etc. Your colleagues on this email can be of help in this.
If anyone wants to chime in, please do so. Perhaps we can discuss this at our monthly meeting next week.
I know I asked this question before, but I honestly cannot find my notes or emails on the answer.
I am sorry for the repeat, but I am wondering how CFB's under Humanities Councils can get funding for the National Book Festival?
Also, if anyone can help with my understanding of the logistics of the Festival, that will be helpful.
What sort of items do you all bring to the Festival? (I imagine it is different for everyone, I am just looking for the "must haves").
I know it is early for these sort of questions, but time has a habit of passing, and I would hate to miss something.
