2016 Read-a-thon

 

The Brooke Jackman Foundation’s 7th Annual Read-a-thon was a huge success! Thanks to the parents, children and all of our supporters that came to celebrate Brooke’s life through literacy.

Every year we hold a read-a-thon in honor of Brooke, to highlight the importance of literacy and share our love of books with others. Each year, an array of special guest readers bring stories to life as children and families in the New York City area gather for an afternoon of reading and fun. This year’s special guests include . . .
