Poet, Author, and Educator Kwame Alexander discusses his forthcoming Book-in-Day Spring Fundraiser event and Capital Book Fest. Visit the fundraiser event RSVP page at http://bookinaday.eventbrite.com/ Book-in-a-Day (BID) is a non-profit that fosters literacy skills through a groundbreaking writing and publishing workshop, which focuses on student-run publication—in one day. Educators spend hours looking for exciting ways to bring literature to life. The solution is Book-in-a-Day, a new fun-filled, hands-on literacy workshop that teaches students the fundamentals of creative writing, poetry, and book publication. Since 2007, we have created more than 800 student authors in 19 schools across the country.
