By The Books started as Mailchimp’s summer reading program, a long-standing partnership with the Decatur Book Festival. This year, the emerging authors who depend on book festivals and tours that were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, lost their chance to present their inspiring work to the world. To help, we created a virtual literary festival featuring a curated collection of books to support the community. Proceeds from your purchase will go directly to the Decatur Book Festival.
