Book Harvest collecting children’s book donations on Monday for their annual MLK drive

On Monday, January 20, 2014, from 1 to 4 pm, Book Harvest is having a children’s book drive at the Carolina Theatre of Durham. “10,000 Books for Kids (10KBK) is Book Harvest’s annual community-wide book drive on MLK Day and a celebration of diversity, literacy, and book ownership for all kids.  Help us bring in 10,000 books in a single afternoon! Everyone! Round up your new and gently used children’s books – and those of your neighbors, friends, classmates, and coworkers – and bring them to us at the Carolina Theatre on the afternoon of MLK Day.  Working together, we can ensure that all our children have books! Durham Mayor Bill Bell will kick off the festivities at 1:00 p.m.  Also joining us will be: Wool E Bull; the Only Burger truck; musicians Matt Phillips and John Marshall; a pop-up store from Letters Bookshop; and local author “celebrity volunteers”, including Sarah Dessen, Daniel Wallace, Randall Kenan, Stephanie Greene, John Stanley, j.j. Johnson, Kristyn Kusek Lewis, Frances O’Roark Dowell, and John Claude Bemis.” [Facebook event]
