About Behind the Book

Behind the Book is a literacy nonprofit on a mission to excite children and young adults about reading.

Working with low-income students in New York City’s K-12 public schools, Behind the Book brings authors and their books into individual classrooms to build literacy skills and nurture a new generation of book readers. 

We make reading more than schoolwork—we make reading something kids want to do.
