Books-A-Million Kicks off Annual Back to School Book Drive on July 23
"Books are a highly valuable resource to children and access to them is often taken for granted," said Scott Kappler, vice president of marketing at Books-A-Million. "As one of the largest book store companies nationwide, it is our obligation to ensure that children from all walks of life have the tools they need to succeed in school, starting with the gift of literacy. With our annual drive, we hope to bring increased access to thousands of kids across the U.S., in turn building confidence and educational potential."
Readers interested in sharing the love through the annual program will be able to choose from the many suggested novels placed near the store checkout or select one of their personal favorites for donation. Fan favorites to consider include the entertaining "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio, J.K. Rowling's thrilling adventure novel turned major motion picture "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" and John Green's highly anticipated new novel, "Turtles All the Way Down," which is available for pre-order at the end of July in any Books-A-Million store or online at booksamillion.com.
Participants must purchase new books from Books-A-Million to be considered for donation. For more information on how to participate in the book drive, please visit booksamillion.com.
