Get Lit! is a non-profit program housed within Eastern Washington University. We do not get a budget from EWU to run the festival, so we rely on grant funding, local sponsors and partners, ticket and merchandise sales, and other fundraising efforts to present the festival each year. Thank you for purchasing merchandise, and participating in our annual book sale. Every single dollar raised via our Shop goes directly towards building our next festival, April 20th-23rd, 2023.

Get Lit! Holiday Fundraiser

Used Book Bundles by Genre


*or a Mixed Bundle!*

Each year Get Lit! receives donations of gently used books from our generous literary community. We sell those books at our annual holiday fundraiser where they will be packaged in mystery bundles of three books per bundle. These are organized by genre (Poetry, Fiction, or Nonfiction), and we also offer a mixed bundle, which will include one book from each genre. Treat yourself to one of these book bundles, or gift them to your friends and family!
We will ship bundles for $6.95 each or you can pick yours up for free at the Catalyst Building in Spokane by choosing the Walk In option. If you choose that option, please email to schedule your pickup time. All of the proceeds from this fundraiser go towards building our 2023 festival budget. Thank you for your support!
