Romance Authors Support Literacy

Today is the final day of the 2017 Romance Writers of America (RWA) National Conference in Orlando, Florida. The closing event is the Readers for Life Literacy Autographing. This free book signing, which is open to the public and draws huge numbers of readers, features hundreds of romance writers. The Literacy Autographing is an opportunity for readers to meet their favorite authors and discover new ones.

Proceeds from book sales at this fundraiser benefit literacy programs and organizations. Since 1990, RWA has donated $1 million.

The Literacy Autographing is open from 3-5 p.m. today at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort , Pacific Hall.

Even if you cannot attend the RWA Readers for Life Literacy Autographing, there are many ways you can support literacy programs. Here are a few ideas:

Donate used books to libraries, schools, women’s shelters and refugee organizations.

Volunteer with your local literacy organization, school or community center to read aloud to children, provide one-on-one mentoring, etc.

Create a book-rich and reading-friendly environment in your home.

Donate to literacy organizations.
