"Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing

    At the "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing, hundreds of romance authors meet with and sign books for fans in this two-hour event, with the proceeds from book sales going to literacy organizations. 

    In 2014, Romance Writers of America raised more than $53,000 to benefit ProLiteracy Worldwide, Literacy Texas, Restore Education, and Each One Teach One San Antonio. Since 1990, RWA has raised more than $878,000 to fight illiteracy.

    Thank you to the Nora Roberts Foundation for underwriting the 2014 Literacy Autographing!

    The 2015 "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing will be on Wednesday, July 22, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the New York Marriott Marquis.
