"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 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.
