The Wisconsin Book Festival and Madison Public Library Foundation are deeply grateful to the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation for becoming the festival’s Signature Sponsor for the 2024–25 season!

Rowland has been a longtime backer of the festival’s work through both her own foundation and American Girl’s Fund for Children: In fact, both organizations have been sponsors since the very first festival in 2002.

We can’t thank the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation enough for increasing its annual monetary support. With its generosity, the festival can strengthen its program offerings, and continue to be a resource for book lovers in Madison and beyond.
