Test your knowledge of books and writers -- while enjoying refreshments and having fun -- and support an organization that brings the power of words to the youth of Boston. Local authors, including Celeste Ng and Kelly Link, will make appearances throughout the evening, and all donations will go to 826 Boston.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
826 Boston is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Their services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this understanding in mind, they provide drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications. All of their free programs seek to strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
