Your donation makes it possible for 25,000 people of all ages and backgrounds engage with notable writers, scientists, artists and original thinkers every year.

Your support has enabled us to bring exceptional writers to under-served schools, connecting 9,000 students with award-winning writers and putting 1,800 books in the hands of children who often don't have books at home.

We’ve hosted High School students from East Palo Alto at many of our Premier events, arranging for them to meet and discuss the important issues of the day with former Vice President Al Gore, physicist Michio Kaku, and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor among others.

There are book events that celebrate the written word, and then there are book events that change lives. Kepler’s Literary Foundation is a life-changer. I’ve never had an experience quite like the one I had with KLF. This is a program that helps students fall in love with books.  This is a program that turns reluctant readers into joyful ones. And most importantly, this is a program that reaches children who otherwise might not be reached. This is a program where every penny is wisely used and every effort is a labor of love. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
