Behind the Book


Working with low-income students in New York City K-12 public schools, Behind the Book brings authors and their books into individual classrooms to build literacy skills and cultivate new generations of book readers. All of our programs are integrated into classroom curricula and include writing projects. We turn reading into something kids want to do by connecting them with contemporary literature that reflects their lives.
