Start a Book Club
The Literary Freedom Project can create flexible reading programs, in-person and on Zoom, that meet the needs of a variety of populations including adults, teens, after-school, out-of-school, and senior citizens, among others. Book clubs create a welcoming environment to discuss community-related issues while (re)sparking a love of reading.
Donations make our programs possible. Make a gift and we’ll add your name to the list of supporters.
