On June 20, the National Book Foundation (presenter of the National Book Awards) is hosting The Other NBA, a charity basketball game featuring winning writers vs. publishing powerhouses. Proceeds will support BookUp, the Foundation’s after school reading program, expand into Detroit, a city with a 47% adult illiteracy rate.
You can join us throughout the day at booth 210, where we’ll be celebrating our National Book Awards Longlists. There you’ll also be able to meet the co-founders of Call Me Ishmael, one of our Innovations in Reading Prize Honorees, who’ll be there with a special surprise!
PLUS, you can pick up t-shirts and limited edition jerseys from The Other NBA, the greatest basketball game in Literary history.
