Join Jumpstart on Wednesday, April 19th, at our 12th annual Scribbles to Novels gala as we celebrate the power of the written word and shine a spotlight on the importance of early literacy development in children. The celebratory evening will include an Authors Circle where attendees can chat with well-known authors and receive signed books, a full dinner program, a live auction hosted by fashion photographer Nigel Barker, and a special appearance by New York Times best-selling author and host/producer of Top Chef Padma Lakshmi. In addition to Choice Book Award-winner Jarrett J. Krosoczka, this year’s Authors Circle will include the following celebrated writers: Charles Bock (Beautiful Children: A Novel), Susan Rieger (The Heirs), David Carnoy (Lucidity: A Thriller), Laurie Jordan (Yawning Yoga), Adele Griffin (The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone), and more. The gala will take place at Capitale, located in the famed former Bowery Savings Bank building, and will include a special four-course meal prepared by Curran Affair Events. Jumpstart is a national early education organization working toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. Since 1993, Jumpstart has served 98,000 preschool children in low income communities, teaching them the language and literacy skills they need to be successful in kindergarten and beyond. In New York City last year, over 400 advocates showed their support for Jumpstart, raising over $1.1 million for regional programs.
