For those of you who missed last week’s fabulous wine tasting, never fear- there are still plenty of ways for you to show your support! Help us continue to bring authors and books into high need classrooms by taking part in our exciting upcoming events.
January 29, 2013 - Behind the Book’s 10th anniversary benefit is tomorrow, and we invite you to join us in celebrating a decade of innovative programs promoting literacy to children and youth in NYC! The event will feature guest speaker New York Times Bestselling author Lee Woodruff, as well as plenty of opportunities to support our programs. Our silent auction is a diverse array of phenomenal items, including a cooking class in your home led by Midnight Chef; a consultation and haircut with Antonio Soddu; a class at Yoga Union with Brette Popper; an artisanal olive oil tasting for two at Eataly; tickets for the New York Yankees and the Daily Show with Jon Stewart; gift certificates to Harlem Flo and Worth New York; and more! Tickets can be purchased here; don’t forget to check out our Facebook event for more information.
February 1 – 7, 2013 - Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and we have the perfect way to celebrate with your special someone while supporting a great cause! For the first week in February, Hanky Panky Intimate Apparel will donate a percentage of their net sales to Behind the Book, helping us bring even more authors and their books into classrooms this year. Be sure to visit their website as soon as this great opportunity starts on Friday!
