ABOUT BURST INTO BOOKS
Burst Into Books' mission is to rebuild our village through advocacy, the arts, educational and family programming. We envision a world transformed by cultural literacy through education.
Burst Into Books is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit committed to 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.
