With a Little Help from Our Friends

Here we are again, looking back over another year of bringing you exceptional daily insight and commentary on the world of books. This year — our 12th — rushed by in a whirlwind as we celebrated our 10th Washington Writers Conference, published our 3,800th review, and focused our attention on calling out the alarming rise in book bans.

We’re always grateful and gratified — and a little stunned — to find ourselves still standing in a landscape that has seen countless publications shutter. Running a literary nonprofit is extremely challenging; although our love of books keeps us warm at night, it doesn’t keep the lights on. It’s you, our loyal readers, who do that.

As we enter this season of thanks and giving, we ask you to consider making a donation so that we can continue our mission. (Donating is easy, we promise.) Hint: a recurring monthly donation in any amount is more helpful than you think.

This year, we’re thrilled to report that your generous donation will be matched by another of our donors, up to $5,000.

Feeling extra charitable? So are we! Give $100 or more, and along with our undying gratitude, we’ll send you two excellent books — fiction or nonfiction, it’s your choice — signed by their authors. Or, if you’d prefer, we’ll wrap and send them to someone else on your behalf. Boom! Instant holiday gift!

It’s tough out there for a small bookish nonprofit, but we’re so grateful you’re with us on the ride. Buckle up for another great year!

Jennifer Bort Yacovissi is president of the Independent.
