We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

Kalamazoo-based writer Bonnie Jo Campbell, subject of a Reader profile back in 2000, has been nominated for a National Book Award for her story collection American Salvage, published by little ol’ Wayne State University Press. (Her fellow fiction nominees are published by Random House, Norton, Knopf, and Farrar Straus & Giroux.)
