Urban Reviews is holding its first annual GREAT MIDWEST BOOK FEST on July 25, 2009 from 1- 4pm in Milwaukee, WI. There will be a total of 8 to 10 African American authors selling their books in a book fair setting. This event will be free and open to the public. Our Main Attraction authors include Earl Sewell, Tina Brooks McKinney, Bettye Griffin, and Michelle Larks. The other 4 to 6 authors will be local authors that have yet to be determined.

There are a few different ways that you can be a sponsor for this event. They include one or more of the following:

1) PLATINUM SPONSOR: Advertising in the Souvenir Ad Journal - $25 Text Ad, $35 Quarter Page, $50 Half Page, $100 Full Page Ad - We will forward a copy of the 8.5" x 5.5" souvenir ad journal for your records and we will also include you on the SPECIAL THANKS page in our souvenir ad journal as a Platinum Sponsor. We accept Paypal (preferred payment mode), check, or money order for payment. (Limited spots available, so send an email to the address below and inquire today. All ads must be 300dpi in quality. We ask that you provide the ad graphic to be used, but we will be more than happy to assist in creating the ad as time permits)

2) GOLD SPONSOR: Books for FREE SWAG Bag - 100 SWAG Bags will be given to those who make a book purchase at the event. Donate 5+ books for the SWAG bag and we will include you on the SPECIAL THANKS page in our souvenir ad journal as a Gold Sponsor.

3) SILVER SPONSOR: Monetary donation of $5-$20 to the event costs, donation of any promotional items (pens, bookmarks, t-shirts, postcards, etc), or 1-4 books for the SWAG Bags and we will include you on the SPECIAL THANKS page in our souvenir ad journal as a Silver Sponsor.

If you are sending books or promotional items, please email us back with what you plan to send, and we will put you down as a tentative event sponsor and forward our mailing address to send the materials. Once we receive the materials, we will confirm that it has arrived and secure your name as a definitive sponsor.

We have limited space for advertising, so if you are interested in getting a spot in the souvenir ad journal, please let us know right away. We cannot reserve any spots without payment. Again, all advertising must be done in 300 dpi for the best quality. We will be ordering 250 souvenir ad journals.

If you would like to become a Platinum, Gold, or Silver sponsor or if you have any questions, please contact us at and we will get back to you right away. This will be the first of many literary events that we plan to hold for the Milwaukee area in the years to come. We hope that you can support the Great Midwest Book Fest in anyway that you can.
