Who: Chapman’s Ice Cream and, A Room Of Your Own Book Club
What: To promote the love of reading among teen girls living in marginalized communities across Canada, Chapman’s is donating 600 young adult novels to the non-profit organization.
Chapman’s is donating 200 copies of The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He, So Many Beginnings: A Little Women Remix by Bethany C. Morrow, and Names in A Jar by Jennifer Gold.
After reading each book, the teens will have the opportunity to meet the authors as part of a virtual book club.
“As a family, reading has always been such an important part of our daily lives,” said Ashley Chapman, VP of Chapman’s Ice Cream, in a release. “The love of reading is more than a past time, it is a force of nature that breaks down barriers and opens a person’s mind to other worlds. Literacy is a gift that never stops giving.”
