Give Books and Give Back


silent Book Club Project Night Night

This holiday, give books and give back.

In the spirit of giving this holiday, our final two Bay Area Silent Book Club meetups of the year will be fundraisers to help put books and blankets into the hands of homeless children. Now, more than ever, we need to reach out and help the most vulnerable, to spread kindness and tolerance, and to battle hate and ignorance through education. And that starts with books.

100% of proceeds from ticket sales will be used to support Project Night Night, a non-profit organization that provides homeless children with a tote bag filled with a book, a stuffed animal, and a security blanket. We will be delivering these bags to a San Francisco family shelter in time for the holidays.

SAN FRANCISCO, Monday Nov. 28th, 6-8pm
The Garden Court Lounge at the Palace Hotel

Seating is limited, so please reserve your ticket in advance! If you cannot join us, you may also make a donation through the ticket links above. We are also accepting donations of new or like-new books, blankets, and stuffed animals to fill the bags. Please contact us if you'd like to contibute. 
 

Gratefully yours,


Guinevere, Laura & Kristin
Co-Founders, Silent Book Club
