BENEFITING: THE FOUNDATION FOR CHILDRENS BOOKS INC
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
The mission of the Foundation for Children’s Books is to cultivate children’s curiosity, creativity and academic achievement by igniting in them a love of good books. We do that primarily by bringing acclaimed children’s book authors and illustrators into underserved K-8 schools in Boston for visits and writing workshops.
Since 2005, we have brought 29 award-winning authors and illustrators to 25 different elementary and middle schools in Boston. We also present dynamic professional development events featuring authors and illustrators, along with experts in the field of children’s books. The audience for these events includes librarians, teachers, students, parents and other children’s book lovers.
