Tomorrow I'll be joining a long list of wonderful authors at Raising A Reader's Dinner with an Author, a celebration of their tenth anniversary and a fundraiser for the wonderful work they do connecting underserved kids with books. Did you know that 39% of third graders don't read proficiently and for low income children the number is 60%? Raising A Reader tackles that problem by encouraging caregivers to read to children at home- working with Horizons for Homeless Children, Head Start, and public pre-schools.
If you'd like to join us for a lovely dinner at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, register here. Or you can make a donation to them anytime!
