Poets & Writers
generously provided grants for guest authors conducting programs for the Alliance of Writers.
Financial contributions go to cover Alliance expenses, provide honorariums, and support the Big Bear Valley Friends of the Library.  
  In addition to book sales, guest authors often receive a small stipend through grants and direct sponsorships.
