The Givens Foundation for African American Literature

Welcome to the 2020 Twin Cities Book Festival! The Givens Foundation for African American Literature is proud to continue our tradition of being an Exhibitor for this year’s Festival. We’d like to thank Target and our individual donors for their on-going financial support which allows The Foundation to  partner with important programs like this. In collaborating again with the 2020 Twin Cities Book Festival, The Foundation fulfills our important mission which is dedicated to enriching cultural understanding and learning through programs that advance and celebrate African American literature and writers.

We encourage you to listen to our Black Market Reads podcast (BlackMarket Reads.com) hosted by Lissa Lofgren-Jones and produced in co-operation with iDream.tv. Exciting interviews of writers and attendees from prior Twin Cities Book Festivals can be found there. In 2019, Black Market reads was the #1 podcast for Summer reading on Spotify.

Lastly, please consider making a donation to support our important work at givensfoundation.com/Donate. Thank you and enjoy the 2020 Twin Cities Book Festival!
