American Book Review


In order to ensure that the American Book Review and its community outreach events are consistently and fully funded, the Friends of ABR Endowment Campaign was launched in the fall of 2007. The goal of this campaign is to raise $1 million from corporations, foundations, and individuals. We are pleased to announce we are already over a third of the way toward our goal, having raised to date almost $350,000.

In addition to helping to sustain the American Book Review's lasting place as champion of underrepresented and small press literature, revenues generated by the endowment will help underwrite honoraria and travel expenses associated with the UHV/ABR Reading Series and help establish new undergraduate and graduate curriculum at UHV in the publishing arts. We sincerely hope that the literary and cultural offerings provided by ABR will compel you to donate generously to our nonprofit enterprise. None of this would be possible without your support. Thank you so much!
