I AM PARTICIPATING IN Generosity Brooklyn
IN SUPPORT OF Behind the Book
$2030 RAISED
$2,000 GOAL
Hi friends!

Thanks for visiting my page. As many of you know, I am a member of Behind the Book’s Young Executive Board and have absolutely loved being involved with this organization. We have a 5K fundraiser coming up on May 21st and we need your support!

Whether you remember me reading at the dinner table, ignoring you at an elementary school sleepover so I could focus on my book, or currently work with me in children’s books publishing, you are probably aware that I’m a little bit obsessed with reading :). While I’ve always had easy access to books, allowing reading to become an integral part of my life, this is unfortunately not the case for many New York City students – and that’s where I need your help.

Behind the Book provides an opportunity for kids to learn and appreciate reading and accomplishes this by bringing authors and illustrators into high need schools multiple times per semester. In addition to fundraising and helping support Behind the Book’s programs, I’ve been able to participate in some of these classroom workshops (see my photo for one of the new friends I made at PS 241 in Brooklyn

We have 68 of these programs running this year -- and another 22 classrooms on the waiting list that we simply can’t accommodate unless we raise the funds. Behind the Book brings the power of books to hundreds of students, but there are still many more waiting to discover the wonder of reading. We need your support to reach them! Every donation counts!

Thank you!
Ann
