Community Book Center has been an enduring institution in New Orleans cultural landscape. As part of our 35th Anniversary celebration, we’re organizing a Read-A-Thon to highlight literacy and celebrate readers and writers.
The Community Book Center Read-a-thon is a free, family-friendly event featuring readings by a variety of local authors and poets, and music and dance performances. Community organizations and businesses will also staff outreach booths during the event. The Read-a-thon is produced by a coalition of artists, educators, non-profits, and grassroots organizations in partnership with Community Book Center.
Kickstarter funds will be used for promoting the event through flyers, social media, email marketing, lawn signs and an honorarium for our special guest.
