APRIL 2019

In January, Book Harvest held its eighth annual Dream Big Book Drive and Community Celebration at Durham Central Park on one of the coldest days of the winter. But you wouldn’t know it from looking at the more than 600 guests and volunteers who came out on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. They were donating and sorting books for Book Harvest, a nonprofit that aims to provide books to help improve child literacy. The volunteers spent the afternoon counting, sorting and boxing books. Anchor Tisha Powell from ABC-11 emceed the event. Guests played games on the grass, explored the booths set up by community partners and enjoyed food truck fare. They also worked on a community art project and

received poems written especially for them by the Poetry Fox. Children drew self-portraits and learned affirmations, coinciding with part of Book Harvest’s mission, which is to promote the distribution of diverse and inclusive literature so that children see themselves represented in their books. This year’s drive collected 44,092 books. 1 Joey Current of United Way of the Greater Triangle, Daniele Berman of Book Harvest, and Kaia Clarke and Addie Moody of United Way. 2 Anastasia, 7, and Luke Jackson, 15, with community art coordinators Elizabeth Lyle and Sarah Schulz, and Michelle Zhang, 5. 3 Book Harvest Board Member Sheronda Fleming and Community Partnerships Manager Nadiah Porter. 4 Leo Walker, 6, with the Poetry Fox. 5 Book Harvest Board Members Bert L’Homme, Holly Brown, Linda Shropshire, Sandy Heard and former founding Board Member Michele Lynn.
