Every year, a committed group of volunteers stages this series of events to celebrate and draw attention to Atlantic Canadian writers, illustrators, and book publishers. We are a non-profit organization and registered charity, the Atlantic Book Awards Society. To continue to do this important work, we need the assistance of charitable donors and of business and corporate sponsors who share our passion for writing and reading. Literacy is of vital importance for all Atlantic Canadians. By supporting the Atlantic Book Awards and Festival, you will be helping to foster a strong, vibrant literary community in Atlantic Canada, encouraging the authors of tomorrow by celebrating the authors of today.

Charitable Giving

Effective in the 2012/2013 fiscal year, the Atlantic Book Awards Society is a registered charity, and monetary donations of more than $10 entitle the donor to a tax receipt. For information on how to donate click here:

While we are currently partnering with Atlantic booksellers and publishers and have strong support from the book publishing community and library network, we need additional corporate support so that we can continue to offer free events in schools, bookstores, and libraries throughout the region.

Please help make the Atlantic Book Awards and Festival a memorable and successful event. With your support, we can continue to grow this vital celebration of Atlantic books and bookmakers. For more information contact Laura Carter at
