ARTS, EDUCATIONAL AND FAMILY PROGRAMMING

Literacy & Resources for children 6 months to 18 years old. Representation by way of diverse authors, books & storytellers. We encourage and develop young readers to discover books, share stories, explore dialogue, and have fun! From youth book clubs, family events, writing workshops, educational services, and online workshops, you’ll find plenty of inspiration for a great conversation and lots for your kids and families to get involved. 

 

Since 2018, we’ve impacted over 2,000 young readers!

ABOUT BURST INTO BOOKS

Burst Into Books is a nonprofit organization that is focused on rebuilding our village through advocacy, the arts, educational and family programming. Our mission is to empower the community through teaching cultural literacy, financial literacy, digital literacy, reading and writing. 


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.
