Don't let the new name fool you. The name might be different, but the idea is still the same. Let's share our love of books on Thursday, April 12, 2019, as part of Drop Everything and Read Day. Slide a special bookmark or note into your favorite YA book and "drop" it on April 12th for another teen to find. Bus stops. Coffee shops. Basketball courts. Wherever teens hang out in your neighborhood, "drop" a book there. 


Drop Everything and Write Day 2019


Phoenix-based teens can join us for a hands-on, interactive event with local YA authors. Bring your favorite writing equipment. In between writing workshops, we'll have time for snacks and socializing with like-minded teens. We will also have door prizes and send you home with books for Drop Day.
