Support the CVC of Atlanta and the Carol D. Reiser Children’s Book Award winner at the AJC Decatur Book Festival! Bring your family and come to the Children’s Stage on Sunday, August 31st from 4:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., where the CVC will present the Reiser Book Award to author Cindy McKinley for her book, One Voice.
Children will enjoy visits from costumed characters and will learn about the joy of "paying it forward." After a reading by Ms. McKinley, children will participate in a hands-on volunteer activity presented by Bright Horizons.
The Carol D. Reiser Children’s Book Award is given annually to the children’s book or books published the preceding year that most effectively inspires community service and volunteerism in children.
This award was established by the CVC of Atlanta, where Carol was co-founder and past president, and is a living tribute to Carol Reiser’s lifelong commitment to community.
Judges are national level experts in children’s literature and in volunteerism.
