2017 Book Grants

We are excited to announce our 2017 Book Grants! Due to the incredible financial support received during our end of year campaign, we are granting 2,500 of our teen-authored books to schools and organizations across DC.

A full list of grants is below. Through these grantee partners, we will place the stories created by our teen authors in the hands of the students who need them the most. Thank you for your support in making this possible!
