We are a group of Literary Professionals coming together to create events and spaces that are more inclusive of Authors of Colors and the multitude of Genres we represent through presentation, education, and demonstration.


Our Mission

The Literary Evolution harnesses the power of free enterprise to bring literacy and opportunity to people from every walk of life. We are driven to provide participants with a highly-valued experience. One that allows them to align their actions with their goals and values. We want to become their favorite marketplace and their favorite partners, so we strive to incorporate researched input into everything we do.

We seek out talented people who are like goal, calling upon them to share their knowledge and expertise with our core audiences. We respect each individual, achievement, and team success. We strive to do the right thing at all times, with all people and all issues.

We look for new and bold ideas while we embrace and create change. We are fully committed to the cause of literacy. Every person should have the chance to achieve their potential and participate fully in our society. We’re more than just another book event. We equally consider our authors, our readers, our literary professionals, our community, and the lives changed by our common cause.
