DEAR READERWHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES!At the beginning of 2020, Bookmarks had never hosted a virtual event. By early 2021, we had reached more than 6,000 people through 150 virtual programs. A few highlights of 2021 include the national book launch of John Hart’s new novel, The Unwilling, with a virtual conversation featuring Hart and New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell. We were also chosen as one of only a few bookstores in the country for the virtual tour of Kristin Hannah’s The Four Winds. In September, we were thrilled to host our 16th Festi al of Books & Authors and to be able to gather again, safely, to celebrate the love of books and reading. Thank you to our community sponsors and partners (see a complete list on page 11), who helped us host 5,000 in-person a endees from eight states. The festi al featured 51 in-person and 15 virtual authors, including North Carolina author Jason Mott, whose novel Hell of a Book was not only a Signed First Editions Club pick, but also won the National Book Award for ficti this fall. With safety protocols in place, 18 festi al authors were able to visit 26 schools throughout Forsyth County.The inaugural Book with Purpose program launched in May and focused a community-wide e ort to discuss anti acism. With its name taken from our tagline -- Books with Purpose -- this summer reading initi ti e helped spark a dialogue with people of all ages and unite the community. Together with more than 40 organizations including book clubs, schools, and nonprofits, we sparked honest and open conversation about racism and its e ects on our local community and the world. Through this program, Bookmarks donated 3,000 books to local schools and readers.With the philanthropic support we have received, we have been able to culti ate community and increase access to books for people of all ages in Winston-Salem and beyond. I am so proud of the impact that Bookmarks has made over the last two years and through this unprecedented time. Thank you for your support and for believing in the life-changing power of books!

The Book With Purpose summer program was created in 2021 to unite the Winston-Salem community over the summer with a one-read initi ti e for all ages. Building on our organizatio ’s tagline, Books with Purpose, we wanted to bring awareness of the important role books play in our understanding of the world around us. With this initi ti e, we plan to focus on a new theme each year and include a recommended reading list for all ages. In 2021, the theme was anti acism. Our goal was to connect people from all walks of life in meaningful discussions about racism and anti acism through a variety of book club talks, author conversations, panel discussions with community leaders, and more. Through this program, we worked with 40 organizations,including Action4 quity, a/perture cinema, the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, Black Philanthropy Initi ti e, Crossnore Communities for Children, Delta Arts Center, Family Services, Forsyth County Public Library, Hispanic League, Imprints Cares, Knollwood Baptist Church, LEAD Girls of NC, Libro.fm, Winston-Salem Chapter of The Links, MUSE Winston-Salem, Piedmont Environmental Alliance, The Foundation for Prosecutorial Accountability, Read Write Spell, Reynolda House, Rise & Flow, RiverRun International Film Festi al, Salem Academy & College, Salemtowne Reti ement Community, Spatial Justi e Studio at Winston-Salem State University, The Speech Bus, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Triad Cultural Arts, Triad Restorati e Justi e, Wake Forest University School of Law, WillHouse Global, Winston-Salem Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, The Winston-Salem Foundation, Winston-Salem Symphony, and The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem. Using the works of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds as a starting point, we launched discussions throughout the community. We raised money to donate 3,000 copies of Stamped from the Beginning, Stamped: Racism, Anracism, and You, Stamped for Kids, and Anracist Baby to Winston-Salem/Forsyth County BOOK WITH PURPOSE &EVENT HIGHLIGHTSOur closing Festi al Keynote was Yusef Salaam at the Central Library.

schools, non-traditional schools, colleges and universities, and our community partnering organizations. Multipl copies of each book went to each of the 10 Forsyth County Public Library branches, and Libro.fm donated 300 audiobook copies of Stamped for us to distribute. We also were able to get large print versions and Spanish language editions into the community. We loved the shared journey everyone took through the summer with this program, and we look forward to the 2022 Book with Purpose, which will focus on the theme of mental health. At the end of September, we were thrilled to bring back the annual Festi al of Books & Authors for the 16th time. Though on a much smaller scale and with many restrictions, the festi al was a huge success and it remains the largest annual book festi al in the Carolinas. We featured 51 authors in person on four stages and pre-recorded virtual author conversations with 15 authors on a fift stage. Authors included National Book Award winner Jason Mott, National Book Award finalist Lauren Gro , Newbery Medal winner Linda Sue Park, bestselling horror writers Grady Hendrix and Stephen Graham Jones, and book club favorites Anne Bogel and Wiley Cash. Despite COVID-19 restrictions, we were able to bring together panels of authors to discuss genres such as romance and fantasy and o er storytimes and book-themed crafts and activitie for children and families. The festi al site accommodated 50 exhibitors, including self-published authors, publishers, nonprofits, and community groups, as well as local food trucks. Eighteen authors visited 26 schools on Friday, and we donated more than 500 books to students. We had 5,000 in-person a endees from eight states on Saturday and recorded several of the panel discussions, which are available to view on artarie.com/bookmarks.The weekend ended with our closing keynote presentation, which was held at Central Library with Dr. Yusef Salaam, who was one of fi e people exonerated in the Central Park jogger case in New York. Dr. Salaam discussed his new memoir, Beer, Not Bier. The program also served as our closing program of the Book with Purpose summer initi ti e.Book with Purpose booksBookmarks volunteers who built beds for A Bed and a Book in July.

INCOME & EXPENSESYear two of the pandemic included virtual events for the fi st half of the year and a slow transition back o in-person programming in June. Thanks to the ongoing support of readers in our community, the bookstore is functioning xactly as we had hoped – as an alternati e revenue stream for our nonprofit and a f ee space to hold our events and meetings. ook sales allow us a reliable cash fl w and have allowed us to increase our donations o the community and schools. Though we do not make a profit on the books ore, we are proud of the work that has been accomplished because of its existence. Over the past year, we have been working with a strategist and development professional to help guide us with a new strategic plan and to forge a path forward for fundraising and organizational g owth. We have big plans for this year and hope that 2022 will allow us more tim to gather in person and get back to pre-pandemic large-scale events that are strong fundraisers for Bookmarks.
