Behind The Book's mission is to motivate young people to become engaged readers by connecting them to contemporary writers and illustrators. We bring authors and their books into individual classrooms to build literacy skills and create a community of life-long readers and writers. Our programs take place in underserved K-12 public schools, are part of the class curricula and meet the Common Core Standards.
Behind The Book would like to thank the following funders for their recent contributions to our literacy programming:
The Korein Foundation
The Grodzins Fund Random House, Inc.
