Over 50 at-risk children grades K-6 and their families will experience the joy of literacy this holiday season with a theatrical reading led by actress Kimberly Marable, who most recently toured the US and Canada with the blockbuster hit musical The Book of Mormon.
The Brooke Jackman Foundation (BJF), an organization that promotes literacy for at-risk children in New York City, and the Screen Actors Guild Foundation BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools), a literacy program through which 2,200 SAF-AFTRA performers read to over 60,000 children every month, are hosting the reading.
Following the reading, BJF will give children’s books to each child in attendance. BJF will also donate additional books to the YM & YHCA of Washington Heights & Inwood.
