    We invite you to participate in our 2019 summer giving campaign to support forthcoming books that matter by “befriending a book."

    It's simple. To Befriend a Book, choose one of the nine forthcoming titles listed in the drop-down menu on this page and make a gift of personal significance toward it.

    To thank you for your support, AJB will send you a signed, digital broadside featuring an excerpt and cover art from the book that you're supporting. These broadsides can be shared across your favorite online mediums or printed and framed for that perfect spot in your home or office. Maybe both?

    All through the month of July, there’s time to Befriend a Book and show unique support toward Alice James literary artists whose books are in production. With such a diverse collection of voices and stories to choose from, we know you’ll find the book for you; whether its Jill McDonough’s searingly witty Here All Night, Shira Erlichman’s poignant debut Odes to Lithium, or any one of these books that matter, your support helps our growing family of talented poets.

    Alice James Books is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All contributions are tax-deductable.
