Promoting literacy in the Ravenswood Schools

There are book events that celebrate the written word, and then there are book events that change lives. Kepler’s Literary Foundation is a life-changer. I’ve never had an experience quite like the one I had with KLF. This is a program that helps students fall in love with books.  This is a program that turns reluctant readers into joyful ones. And most importantly, this is a program that reaches children who otherwise might not be reached. This is a program where every penny is wisely used and every effort is a labor of love. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
