Reflecting on World Book Night 2013
Yesterday, April 23, was World Book Night and I donated a box of books to a local school, Handley Middle School. I shocked the lady in the school office by telling her the books were a donation to the school. The people that work at this school don't know me, and for a stranger to walk in the school office carrying a box of free books to donate to their school just made their day. Which made my day. After explaining a bit about World Book Night, I expressed that, "I was in hopes that a love of reading would be instilled in these kids that would be lasting." This years books that I donated was Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward.
Thanks to the organizers and participants of World Book Night.
