Spellbinding Events is more than just helping authors put on an amazing networking event, where they can sell their books and find readers who love their style. We also want to give back.


All funds raised during the raffle at DC Bookstars, every cent, will be given to United Through Reading, who is excited we're partnering with them.

While you're prepping for the event, please consider bringing a raffle basket or items toward a raffle basket to help us support this amazing organization. We will have raffle tickets available for purchase, and we encourage all attendees, PAs, and authors to participate.
