Help write a great beginning for Read Up Greenville!

Read Up Greenville is the Upstate of South Carolina’s premier celebration of literary arts and the only book festival in the area for middle grade and young adult readers. Middle grade and young adult books are the hottest segment of the literary market, appealing to tweens, teens, and adults. On August 6th, 2016, Read Up Greenville will bring hundreds of young readers – and their parents – to the Peace Center in downtown Greenville, SC to interact with some of their favorite authors through feature presentations, speaker panels, book signings, book readings, and more.


We need your help to launch Read Up Greenville! Help us reach our goal of $10,000 by April 1st! All gifts made by April 1st will be recognized on signage in the Read Up venue and in the festival program. Every gift helps!
