Since 2003, we have worked to serve students throughout metro Atlanta. Our goal has always been to instill a life-long love of reading in the children who participate in our programs. Students benefit from real-world knowledge, reinforcement of school curricula and state standards, exposure to careers, engagement with corporate employees & exposure to the Arts and STEM education.
Join us for a night filled with surprise and wonder at A Storybook Evening: When You Wish. Enjoy cocktails, a light dinner, and a silent/live auction while meeting new and old friends.
Most importantly, let’s work together to provide books and quality literacy programs for our most vulnerable youth. Help us create a world in which all children will grow up to be literate, well-informed, productive and compassionate citizens.
