THE STORY:

Books change readers; readers change the world! The 20th annual Rochester Children's Book Festival on November 12th at MCC will honor special guest Salva Dut, a former “lost boy” of Sudan and Founder of Water for South Sudan, who overcame incredible odds to not only survive war in his country, but to return years later and provide water to his people. Newbery Medal winner Linda Sue Park, who wrote A Long Walk to Water based on Mr. Dut’s story, will also be honored at the Festival. Their collaboration has inspired school children around the world to raise over $1 million for new wells in South Sudan. By harnessing the fundraising power of Festival attendees, volunteers, authors and illustrators, the RCBF hopes to raise $15,000 to fund a new well this year. We’ve already raised over $8,400 (thanks in part to a matching grant,) but we still have a long way to go. Please walk with our team on October 1st and then come to the 9:30 a.m . session on November 12th to hear Salva Dut and Linda Sue Park speak about A Long Walk to Water. You and other students and families who have helped in the fundraising effort will be applauded at this session. Go to www.rcbfest.com for more info. Thank you!
