If you’re a fan of the Texas Book Festival, here’s a chance to help their programs. Beginning today, the festival’s Amplify Austin campaign has set a goal of raising $15,000 for Reading Rock Stars, a literacy program that brings children’s authors into Title 1 schools to meet students and hand out signed copies of their book.
For many students, the festival says, this is the first book they will on. The festival has given away more than 70,000 books to low-income young readers in Texas through the program.
Every dollar the festival gets will be matched by the Herbert Simon Family Foundation.
