Mission
In the midst of shrinking education budgets, Behind the Book (BtheB) offers NYC students a refreshingly creative and empowering experience. Working with classes from Kindergarten through 12th grade, Behind the Book brings authors and their books into individual classrooms to build literacy skills and create a community of life-long readers and writers. Authors teach a series of workshops that engage and inspire students and culminate in the publication of a writing project, such as an illustrated book, a school newspaper, or a short story anthology. BtheB programs are part of the class curricula and meet the Common Core Standards.
