Brooke Jackman Foundation Fourth Annual Read-A-Thon

Created in the aftermath of 9/11, the Brooke Jackman Foundation (BJF), which promotes literacy for at-risk children in the greater New York area, will host its fourth annual Read-a-thon to help make the magic of literacy and the love of books a reality for disadvantaged children. Each year, an array of special guest readers brings stories to life as New York area children and families gather for an afternoon of books and bonding. Guests have included New York Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano, Rosie Perez and Alec Baldwin, among others. The BJF Read-a-thon is a free event that celebrates the positive, transformative power of literacy and commemorates more than a decade of instilling the love of reading into hundreds of children throughout New York

Admission is free.
