Support the CVC of Atlanta and the Carol D. Reiser Children’s Book Award winner at the Decatur Book Festival! Bring your family and come to the Children’s Stage on Sunday, September 1st from 3:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m., where the CVC will present the Reiser Book Award to author Jo. S. Kittinger for her book, The House on Dirty Third Street.
Sockly, a puppet from the Center for Puppetry Arts, will make a special appearance, and children will have the opportunity to plant a flower pot to take with them as a gift of cheer to offer to someone in their lives.
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 Corporate Volunteer Council 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.
