The Harvest Book Reading’s sole purpose is to showcase the most worthy published authors and their literary work along with helping to provide meals during the holiday season to families in our communities who are in need.
The event’s purpose is rooted in local literature (the art of written work) and the literary curiosity of the community in which the work resides. Just as a “harvest” gathers mature crops from the fields, The Harvest Book Reading annually gathers some of the most praiseworthy and caring authors in our community to share their works and broaden the literary prospective of others while helping to feed those in our community who are in need.
The Harvest Book Reading is modeled after traditional east coast book readings and public literary events. The event focuses its Readings on themes that are pertinent to the local communities. The goal of the day is to have the program attendees leave with an enduring bond with the authors and their messages while helping neighbors in need.
