The weather is getting cooler and classes are well underway. Here at Behind the Book, we’re looking forward to our annual Celebration Benefit, hosted by Youth, I.N.C.

file_001We hope that you’ll join us on November 15 for what promises to be a great evening at the Waldorf Astoria. In just a few months, this storied venue will close for renovations. An even better reason to attend – your ticket purchase supports our work to bring outstanding literacy programs to kids throughout New York City that need extra support to succeed. This year, we’re serving 1,800 public school students. Our goal is that each and every one of them leaves our program with more skills, greater self-confidence, and a new interest in learning and exploration.

We want to thank our co-chairs for bringing so many friends together to raise vital funds for our organization. We also want to thank our sponsors:img_4068
