UPON A TIME...
children all over the Triangle needed books to read. A brave princess knew that when kids learn to love reading, open books can open doors to a brighter future. So with the help of some storybook friends, she decided to form a rock band. Why? Because this year's Battle of the Bands is benefiting Book Harvest — a local nonprofit that provides books to children in need. You can help, too — every VIP table and individual ticket supports the cause. Help us open minds with open books.

CAUSE

watercolor spot
Book Harvest is a Durham-based nonprofit that provides books to children in need. The Book Harvest team collects new and gently used children’s books and shares them with local low-income children to keep for their very own. By building home libraries, children are empowered to arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, combat summer learning loss once they are in school, and self-identify as readers. Since 2011, Book Harvest has placed more than 320,000 books in the hands and homes of Triangle children in need.

FACTS ABOUT CHILDHOOD LITERACY

15 Minutes
of reading with a parent every day exposes a child to a million words a year.
2/3
of children living in poverty do not have books in their homes.
88%
of first-graders who are below grade level in reading will continue to read below grade level in fourth grade.
80%
of brain development happens in the first three years of life.
25 Books
