Meet the Writers’ mission is to support literacy and foster a love of reading in all New York City students by bringing inspiring authors and artists to their schools. In partnership with each school, we select grade-appropriate and curriculum-friendly writers and illustrators. Based on the long-standing program at PS 321 in Brooklyn, our goal is to get all students excited about books and the power of reading in their lives. We believe that reading matters and that better readers make better writers and better thinkers.

“I was very moved by those kids….And I think what we need to do is educate them so they can become a power in the world. Almost every one of their questions was about how to do better.”
— Mark Kurlansky, Author
