Books by the Bay Literacy Fundraiser

Please help us continue the good work of the South Sound Reading Foundation by attending our 11th annual Books by the Bay Literacy Fundraiser. Meet children’s book authors Brenda Guiberson, Trudy Ludwig, Margaret Lippert, Kurt Cyrus and Margaret Read MacDonald*. Enjoy live music, refreshments and a silent auction to benefit the South Sound Reading Foundation’s many outreach programs. Last year, SSRF gave away more than 40,000 free books to low income children, and provided outreach (through presentations to families and story times to kids) at schools and community venues throughout the South Sound region.
