Words Alive is a non-profit reading advocacy organization that inspires a commitment to reading and develops shared reading experiences for children, youth and adults.
Our vision is to create a community where:
the passion for and sharing of reading provides a common language for all people;
individuals are widely encouraged to cherish the intrinsic value of reading;
the varying elements of the community—political, social and corporate—use literature as a springboard for communication amongst themselves and between each other;
people look to reading as a key to success in the social, educational and personal and career growth arenas; and
existing vehicles of communication and interaction—media, internet, civic groups incorporate literature and its lessons as a matter of course.
