For over twenty-seven years, Rain Taxi has remained a port in a storm, fulfilling our mission to champion writers, readers, and good books. In the heart of the pandemic, we kept our award-winning print magazine and online edition of Rain Taxi Review of Books going strong while broadening audience access through enhanced digital offerings.
This past year, our in-person programming reemerged with renewed vigor, with our Twin Cities Independent Bookstore Passport getting thousands of readers into stores and our Twin Cities Book Festival drawing thousands more to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds for a fun-filled day.
Now we're seeking to raise funds to help Rain Taxi continue our programs at full capacity in 2023. Your generosity can make this happen—even just a $10 gift will help us reach our goal!
"The Twin Cities Book Festival is an intimate opportunity to connect with the spectrum of book people, from booksellers to book promoters, from educators who use the books in their classrooms to families who read the books at bedtime. It's a wonderful space to engage with the literature of the Twin Cities and across the nation.”
