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 Saturday, September 5 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., where the CVC will present the Reiser Book Award to author Katie Stagliano for her book, Katie's Cabbage, at 4:45 p.m.
The CVC of Atlanta invites the public to join the celebration at this free event which will include a reading by the author and hands-on service project for children. The service project is sponsored by Bright Horizons, a leading provider of early education and preschools, employer-sponsored child care, back up care, educational advisory services and other work/life solutions.
The Carol D. Reiser Children’s Book Award is annually given to an author whose book inspires community service and volunteerism in children. The CVC established this national award in 2002 in honor of Carol D. Reiser, a co-founder and past president of the CVC, as a living tribute to her lifelong commitment to community.
Judges are national level experts in children’s literature and in volunteerism.
The Decatur Book Festival is free to attend. For more information about the Festival, go to http://www.decaturbookfestival.com.
