Such an imperative conversation

I’m so grateful for this podcast. Literacy, love of reading, and access to texts should be rights, not privileges. The ideas and information shared here make it easier for us to help everyone have the option to become an avid reader.

The LINC Model Works

Molly Ness’ guests Shari Levine and Rosalind Diaz of LINC bring to light the pervasive literacy crisis in this country and solutions that are working. LINC gets it: build trust and give families the tools they need to create and support their own little readers. LINC is the bridge that families need. Wonderful organization and inspiring work! Thank you, Molly. Keep spreading the word. We must #endbookdeserts in this country.
