Milk and cookies is a wonderful combination–mix in books, and you have a smashing event by nonprofit Milk + Bookies. On Sunday, April 15, the third annual Story Time Celebration will be held at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. The event by Milk + Bookies will feature celebrity readings, book donations, arts and crafts, as well as music and entertainment.
Milk + Bookies is a nonprofit that inspires children to give back with books. It was founded in 2004 by a mother of two, Meredith Alexander, in Los Angeles and expanded in 2009 with the help of Heidi Lindelof and Laura Zimmerman. The organization hopes that its events will encourage literacy promotion and service learning.
The organization has also partnered with a number of companies. Isabella’s Cookie Company will provide a special baked treat that will be served at the event as well as online to support the organization’s initiative. Books from Scholastic will be available at the event for children to select, purchase, and inscribe them with messages for others who do not have access to their own reading material.
