To support the Seventh Annual Festival of Books in South Dakota, including a component for authors to work in schools and National History Day in South Dakota.

SDHC seeks funding for the Seventh Annual Festival of Books. South Dakota author Dan O'Brien will be one of the featured authors. O'Brien is the author of the One Book South Dakota selection, Buffalo for the Broken Heart. He will be joined by 40 to 45 other authors who will explore significant events and themes in American history and culture through tracks in history and tribal writers, poetry, fiction, children's nonfiction, and writers' support. The Authors in the Schools program bookends the festival and provides additional opportunities for South Dakota students (K through college, as well as at other community venues) to explore America's defining principles. 4,000 to 5,000 visitors are expected at the weekend festival in Deadwood, South Dakota. Several thousand additional students will benefit from the Authors in the Schools program. Some funds will be used to support National History Day in South Dakota, a program that SDHC began to work with in 2008-2009.
