About the First Book Blog

The First Book blog is a place where we can share stories about First Book projects, successes, volunteers, recipient programs, authors, publishers and other partners with our followers. We try to post things that will interest our readers, and we try to provide regular updates so you can keep up with the important work that First Book does all over the country.

The First Book staff celebrating Read Across America DayWho writes this stuff? The blog is often written by our communications staff, but other First Book staffers (including Kyle Zimmer, our president and CEO) share their thoughts from time to time.  We also try to feature guest blog posts from interesting people in the worlds of literacy and education.
