EVENT DATE: Mar 25, 2015
The NOLA Book Project is the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival's new initiative to engage local high school students to read books in a philanthropical way. Students will pledge to read books written by local authors, leading up to the 2015 Festival, in exchange for donations from friends and family. The donations will benefit the 2015 Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival and the program hopes to teach students about local literature, fundraising and philanthropy. The students who read the most books and/or raise the most money by the Festival will receive special literary prizes, including VIP passes to the 2015 Festival.
The Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Contributions are deductible according to the provision of current tax laws.
