JUMPSTART’S SCRIBBLES TO NOVELS GALA
This past spring I was very honored to be selected out of hundreds of submissions to be one of six authors (including New York Times’ best sellers Laura Schroff and Jarrett J. Krosoczka) featured in the Authors Circle at the annual Scribbles to Novels Gala in NYC. I got to sign over a hundred books for the guests and enjoy presentations by host Bridget Moynahan and the head of the JUMPSTART organization itself.
JUMPSTART is the only national supplemental program that leverages the power of community and adult-child relationships to build the key language and literacy skills children need to take on the world. Pretty big deal, right?
The evening was attended by close to four thousand people and raised over 1 million dollars for the organization. It was such a special night and I’m so grateful to have been a part of it!!
