Giving to First Book: Two Authors Make a Difference

We’re always pleased when people choose to help support our mission at First Book, especially when those donations help advance the cause of literacy. So we were excited to hear that award-winning authors Kevin Guilfoile and Jonathan Eig have decided to donate $2 for First Book for every copy of their books sold in March, as part of The Morning News Tournament of Books.

Kevin Guilfoile donates to First BookGuilefoile’s novel, The Thousand, has received glowing reviews from across the literary spectrum – from Entertainment Weekly to the New York Times. Guilefoile is a long-time supporter of First Book, and enlisted his friend Jonathan Eig in the donation effort.
