Plum Creek Literacy Festival's 25th Anniversary Campaign

God has been gracious and blessed the Plum Creek Literacy Festival in countless ways over the past 25 years. From our humble beginnings of one day, one author, 200 students in 1996 to three days, 16 authors and more than 15,000 participants in recent years, we thank God and we also stop to reflect and ask, "Where do we go next?"

Our 25th Anniversary Campaign is raising funds to ensure the festival continues to make a positive impact on students, educators and literacy champions for another 25 years!
