The Problem

Over the summer, students show little to no academic growth at best. At worst, they lose up to 3 months of learning. Eesh.

The Solution

Students who read recreationally outperform those who don’t. Students read more when they can choose materials based on their own interests because they find those books -- wait for it... -- interesting!

A Blind Date Book Party exposes your friends to new books -- without exposing the books themselves! Everyone brings a book with its cover wrapped in paper.
