This is the third year that Hachette Book Group will donate 1,000 books to Read Ahead to spread some extra holiday cheer to their students. Join Read Ahead staff, Junior Board members, volunteers, and supporters at their annual book wrapping party. Read Ahead is setting aside 15 spots for YPG members across the four shifts taking place on Tuesday, December 8th and Wednesday, December 9th, so sign up now!

The deadline to RSVP is Thursday, December 3rd. Pizza and refreshments will be provided in addition to holiday tunes. The book wrapping party will take place at Hachette, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, between 51st and 52nd streets. Please sign up here and email Megan Mills with any questions.

Since 1991, Read Ahead has been devoted to promoting children’s literacy in the New York metropolitan area, through our signature reading-based mentoring program. Corporate and community volunteers are matched with struggling readers in nearby elementary schools and facilitate lunchtime mentoring sessions every week during the school year. Read Ahead intervenes at a pivotal point in children’s schooling to improve their odds for a better and more literate life.
