A Unique Community-Based Literary Event
The Harvest Book Reading is an annual community-based literary event and is free to the public. The event was established by Manaspirits, an Arizona 501(c) (3) non-profit, and local life enrichment partners with the intent of helping to feed the hungry while feeding our community's literary passion.
The event's purpose is rooted in local literature (the art of written work) and the literary curiosity of the community in which the work resides. Just as a “harvest” gathers mature crops from the fields, The Harvest Book Reading annually gathers some of the most praiseworthy and caring authors in our community to share their works and broaden the literary prospective of others while helping to feed those in our community who are in need.
FOCUS AND DESIGN
The Harvest Book Reading is modeled after traditional east coast book readings and public literary events. The event focuses its Readings on themes that are pertinent to the local communities. The goal of the day is to have the program attendees leave with an enduring bond with the authors and their messages while helping neighbors in need.
