WHAT is Literature to Life?We know that books have the power to excite the imagination - to encourage free thought, critical thinking, and empathy for others. But more than ever, reading is being left behind. "I can't relate. It's boring," they say.
On hundreds of stages and classrooms each year, lives are made richer by Literature to Life. Together, we can ignite a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime.
"This whole experience opened my eyes to the importance of knowledge and the importance of books and the importance of educating myself." ~Samuel, age 14 from Flint, MI
