The Texas Book Festival’s Reading Rock Stars program is a hands-on literacy initiative that sends nationally recognized authors into Title I schools in Texas to inspire young readers with dynamic presentations and send them home with the most empowering experience of all – their very own book. The Texas Book Festival funds and coordinates the author visits and donates the books to the children as well as a set of books to each school’s library.
This year you can make a $15 donation at a register in a BookPeople Book Sales Tent to buy a book for a Reading Rock Stars student in Houston. For each book you buy, TBF and the Tocker Foundation will match with a book for an affected library (up to 500 books each), turning one book into three. See more at #TXBookStrong.
If you're going to the festival this weekend (November 4 and 5th), think about making a donation to help out kids affected by Hurricane Harvey!
