ABOUT BURST INTO BOOKS
Burst Into Books is a organization focused on rebuilding our village through advocacy, the arts, educational and family programming. Our mission is to use literacy as a tool to help develop a love for literature and provide safe spaces to explore topics that impact the whole family. Programs include author story times, book clubs, writing workshops, online workshops, annual conferences, educational services and family-centered events.
Burst Into Books is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on helping the youth deepen their love of reading by integrating the arts, providing opportunities for them to engage with literary
experts and authors, providing a space for self-expression.
Our staple program is our monthly book club sessions in which we support the entire spectrum of the development of the child, from 6 months of age to 18 years old. Each group has been carefully created with curriculum that is age-appropriate, culturally relevant and academic driven. A reading guide/group leader and literacy expert guest is selected by the founder and executive director, Jurema Gorham.
