Event on Sunday, September 13th

Book Drive Social is about the simplicity of tapping into your social communities to get work done. In this case the work is supporting the resources of classrooms in New York City. Many schools in NYC are unacceptably underfunded and underresourced, with teachers paying out of pocket for basic school supplies, like books and construction paper. Book Drive Social is a piecemeal effort to bring books to teachers and improve the quality of education for our kids.

We are piloting this concept with a fundraiser on Sunday, September 13th from 6:00pm-8:30pm at CAMEO Gallery at the Lovin' Cup Cafe in Williamsburg.

Admission will be free with a young adult literature (YAL) book or suggested donation of $8. The event will be DJed by the editor of TheMusic.FM and we'll have some emerging writers read aloud passages from their favorite YAL books.

All proceeds will be donated to Christine Casher's 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts classes in Brooklyn.

More details to come. Join us for a great time!

  1. Great plan. I'll let you know if I can make it in person, but anyway I'm happy to support and spread the word. -ML
