Ever Read YA Literary Festival

Sponsored by Evergreen Park Public Library and Evergreen Park Community High School

The Ever-Read Literary Festival is designed to ignite a love of reading in our middle school and high school students. Study after study confirms that reading for pleasure is declining., so please consider becoming a sponsor and helping us reverse this troubling trend. 

With your financial support, we can invite teens to meet nationally-recognized authors such as Arshay Cooper, Kwame Alexander, and Angeline Boulley, participate in panel discussions, attend writing workshops, and take home a signed book to treasure. In consideration of your sponsorship, your organization will be prominently acknowledged on banners at the Library and the High School. Your generous support will be shared through press releases, promotional materials, and all social media platforms. EPCHS and EPPL will list your sponsorship in their print and e-newsletters.  Let’s not forget the value of our websites! Your business website will be linked to our websites at and so that one click on your business logo takes a potential customer to your website. 

Plans are underway and we need your support for the Ever-Read Literary Festival. The opportunity for students to meet authors, attend panel discussions, and write their stories in workshops will be academically and personally powerful.
