Behind the Book

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: September 3, 2013, 8:32 PM

Description

Behind the Book is a nonprofit organization that promotes literacy and a reading culture in underserved New York City public schools.

In the midst of shrinking education budgets, Behind the Book (BtheB) offers NYC students a refreshingly creative and empowering experience. We bring authors and their books into individual classrooms to build literacy skills and create a community of life-long readers and writers. Authors teach a series of workshops that engage and inspire students and culminate in the publication of a writing project, such as an illustrated book, a school newspaper, or a short story anthology.

We are the only 501(c)(3) in New York City motivating youth to read through a program of book donations and author visits connected to classroom curriculum.
