Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
We circled the globe
at our May reading clubs with 725 kids, 316 volunteers, 76
parents, and 25 teachers & staff! It was a great adventure.
Sign up now to be part of our upcoming "Super Heroes and Super People" reading clubs on Saturday, June 11.
BARNES & NOBLE BOOKFAIR
It's time to start compiling your summer reading list! If you purchase books at any Barnes & Noble store on Saturday June 18th & Sunday June 19th, a percentage of all sales go to Reading to Kids.
Online purchases count also! Be sure to include our
special code 10477966 when you buy.
As one of our volunteers recently said "Inspiring kids to
read inspires me to read more too!!"
We'll also be celebrating this Bookfair with a Readathon on Saturday, June 18th at
Barnes & Nobles in
Manhattan Beach. Mark your calendars! Gerry Renert, author of
Nathan Saves Summer will read his book at 11am and then Reading to Kids volunteers will read summertime and beachy books until 3pm!
Please respond to this email if you are interested in
participating in the readathon.
AND SILENT AUCTION
Mark your calendars! Wednesday, July 20, is our annual Comedy Benefit and Silent Auction at the
Improv on Melrose. We're lining up an array of talented comics and a bevy of fabulous silent auction items. This will be a night you don't want to miss!
