Fall Student Reader Day Program Largest Yet

Student Reader Day events this fall were bigger and better than ever thanks to generous grants from the Nashville Predators Foundation and Dollar General Literacy Foundation. We were able to send seven wonderful authors from this year’s Southern Festival of Books program to eight Title 1 elementary, middle, and high schools and we were able to purchase more than 1,600 books for participating students to keep to start (or add to) their own personal library.

Authors and schools who participated in Student Reader Day this year included: Kelly Barnhill (The Mostly True Story of Jack) went to Bordeaux Enhanced Option in Nashville; Gitty Daneshvari (School of Fear) visited John Colemon Elementary in Murfreesboro and Southside Elementary in Shelbyville; A.J. Hartley (Darwen Arkwright and the Peregrine Pact) visited Kittrell Elementary in Readyville; Silas House (Same Sun Here) at Cheatham Middle School in Ashland City; Roland Smith (The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers Book 4: Shatterproof) went to Poplar Grove School in Franklin; Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures) visited Antioch High School in Antioch; and Kathryn Williams (Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous) visited Litton Middle School in Nashville.
