Local authors and founders of the online book community readergirlz will distribute more than 300 books to middle and high school students at the Muckleshoot Tribal School on April 15.
Across the nation, Operation Teen Book Drop will deliver 10,000 new books to teens on Indian reservations and tribal lands, an event that coincides with Support Teen Literature Day.
Publishers donated the books, valued at more than $175,000.
In its third year, Operation TBD is part of a massive effort by librarians, young adult authors and avid readers to spur reading on a nationwide scale. The day aims to encourage teens to read for the fun of it.
Everyone who participates in Operation TBD is invited to celebrate at the TBD Post-Op Party on April 15 at the readergirlz blog: http://readergirlz.blogspot.com
