About Us

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 (BtB) offers New York City 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, culminating in the publication of a writing project, such as an illustrated book, school newspaper, or short story anthology.

BtB is the only 501(c)(3) in New York City that motivates youth to read through a program of book donations and author visits connected to the classroom curriculum.
