Literary Mama contributor Cindy Dyson announces the launch of Book Club Works, a grassroots, adoption-style program that matches the thousands of book clubs across the country with the thousands of literacy teachers, activists and volunteers in order to bring the transforming power of books to the people who need it most.
For literacy workers Book Club Works means a steady supply of free, great books. It means knowing a group of readers cares about his or her work. Just a few of the lit- workers who will benefit: tribal teachers; disaster relief workers; homeless shelters; battered women’s shelters; detention centers; prisons; inner city programs.
For book clubs, BCW means having a way to share their love for and knowledge of books beyond their current circle of influence.
