The New Jersey Book Festival will be held on Sunday, October 16th in Englewood NJ. This event will be a celebration of literacy, education, culture and community, highlighting our publishers, authors, story tellers, and other entertainers. We are pleased to have the following corporate sponsors supporting our event: Northern Valley Suburbanite, Panasonic, Starbucks, NVE Bank, ShopRite, AT & T Pioneers and JPMorgan Chase. Also Senator Jon Corzine, Faith Ringgold, and Julia Barr are joining us as honorary chairpersons with Mayor Michael Wildes as our host.

This will be a landmark event for both the Englewood Community Foundation, and the State of New Jersey, as we hope to lay a foundation for an annual event, increasing in size, attendance and reach in our efforts to increase awareness and support for education and literacy throughout our state.
