Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Notes from the Reading Life series this month! Beyond grateful for the speakers and moderators who so generously shared their reading lives and stories, and for @NYPL for presenting this new series with us. Keep reading!

We heard you like prizes.
If you’re in NYC, join us at our summer party for a chance to win these fabulous prizes! Big thanks to all who donated! Ticket link in bio!

We were so thrilled to have Tim Gunn and Min Jin Lee at tonight’s Notes from the Reading Life event! If you missed it, we’ll be at two more @nypl locations this month! Check out for more info.

We’re having a blast at the third annual Why Reading Matters conference at @sfcny! Check out our story for more on all today’s bookish events!

Want to help get books into the hands of kids across the country? Our Book Rich Environments program is sending 422,000 free books to families in public housing authorities, and we’re raising money to help get them there. While the books are generously donated by publishing partners, the shipping costs alone amount to around $25,000. We’re approaching our goal, but need that last boost! Any amount helps, and the link to the fundraiser is in our bio!

Our BookUp students are in print! The anthology collects the stories, poems, and artwork of kids in our BookUp program, which brings published authors to classrooms across the country to help build lifelong, joyful relationships to books and reading.

Field trip! NYC BookUp students visited @booksaremagicbk today, where they picked out new titles for their growing home libraries.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay! If you’re looking to bulk up your reading list with books by women, these 2017 #NBAwards Finalists and Winners are a good place to start.

Giveaway alert! 🚨 Sign up for our email newsletter using the link in our bio, and you’ll be entered to win all four 2017 National Book Awards Winners! The lucky recipients will be announced 3/16.
