The Community Book Center has been an enduring institution in New Orleans cultural landscape for decades. As part of its 35th Anniversary Celebration, they’re collaborating with local artists, educators, and community groups to produce a Read-a-thon on December 7th and 8th. This family-friendly event will celebrate readers and writers, highlighting the importance of literacy, and support for the Community Book Center’s ongoing outreach and education efforts.
When you donate to our Read-a-thon Kickstarter and you could enjoy great rewards like:
Coffee and a mentoring session with Photographer Gason Ayisyin
A music arranging lesson with Kent Jordan or a violin lesson with Rachel Jordan
A new game by Congo Square author Freddi Evans
A private Google Hangout session with the author of “Freedom’s Dance” Karen Celestan
A lunch/consultation with writer Kelly Harris-DeBerry
A limited-edition print from artist and activist Brandan “Bmike” Odums
And New Orleanians are really starting to come through with donations to the Read-a-thon Kickstarter Campaign.
The Community Book Center has raised $4004 to date with 13 days left in the campaign. They are calling on the community to donate to help them get to goal?
An important note; Kickstarter Campaigns are all or nothing, so the Community Book Center must make its $12,000 goal to receive any funding at all.
You can donate today and share the Kickstarter link with your friends! To donate, visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1325470204/community-book-center-read-a-thon.
