Celebrating A Year of Outstanding Momentum

What an amazing year it’s been at SAL! Together with our enthusiastic subscribers, generous supporters, and innovative partners, we enjoyed record-breaking attendance and investments in our programs. And according to our audience members and to the children, youth and teachers we serve, SAL’s literary events and Writers in the Schools program truly made a difference in their lives.

Learn more about all that we accomplished together in our 2015/16 Annual Report. A heartfelt thank you to everyone in the extended SAL community for making these accomplishments possible -- we couldn’t do this work without you.

SAL counts on supporters like you to help us bring our community together, people of all ages and backgrounds, to read and to write, to listen deeply, and to bring forward the voices we all need to hear – in fact, 60% of our annual revenue comes from charitable donations. Please consider making a special year-end gift to help power another year of inspiration, conversation, and community!

The book will be published to coincide with what would have been Trayvon’s 22nd birthday on February 5th and in advance of the five-year anniversary of his tragic death, on February 26th.
