"The greatest gift is a passion for reading."


We need you. Challenging times have made acquiring complimentary copies of books for youths—especially books for children of color—problematic. Additionally, there will be other costs associated with organizing the youth conferences—bus services, accommodations for authors, venues, food, and beverage for the readers.
This is where your generosity comes in.
As a book lover and author—or someone who just wants to help in this ambitious endeavor—you understand how important it is to expose youths to the wonder of books and to help create young authors who will satisfy our literary pallets in the future. We are starting in metro Atlanta, but our ambition is to bring the NYBC to cities and schools across the country.
If you are an author, educator or administrator or someone who cares about youth and reading, we encourage your support. Support can be offered in helping us identify children’s books and young adult authors who would be willing to meet and discuss their work with students; identifying schools and/or students that would welcome our program; volunteer your time by serving at our events; and of course, monetary contributions are always needed and appreciated.
There are Donate buttons throughout the site. Remember, because we are a fiscally sponsored program of United Charitable, a registered 501(c)3, your contributions are tax-deductible.
Thanking you in advance for your support in helping us create young readers and authors. If you ever have any questions, please contact us at fbunn@nationalybc.com.
