The Story Gift Project
Even in a digital age, books are still treasures. For those who don’t often have the privilege of having a book of their own, or who too seldom have the pleasure of holding a book in hand rather than merely seeing a fleeting, flickering image on-screen – I have created The Story Gift Project.

The Story Gift Project has collaborated with the National Home Library Foundation and World Book Night. We have donated over 600 books to Ballou Senior High School, H. D. Woodson Senior High School, Richard Wright Public Charter School, Maury Elementary School, Hart Middle School, Richard Wright Public Charter School, Psychiatric Institute of Washington, and Saint Elizabeths Hospital.
