The California Center for the Book is generously participating in Literary Orange 2011 as a Manuscript Sponsor.
The California Center for the Book is a reading promotion agency that celebrates California's rich literary heritage and helps librarians and teachers get Californians reading. In support of its mission, the Center develops and supports local and statewide programs to promote reading in the libraries of California.
The California Center for the Book operates as part of a network of Centers for the Book in every state of the Union, all affiliated with the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. The national Center was created by an Act of Congress in 1977, and was established to stimulate public interest in books, reading and libraries.
The California Center for the Book is supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
