About the Event

With your support, we at The Good Neighbor Collective will be purchasing and distributing books by black authors to residents in NYC public housing units and homeless shelters.

There is no denying the power of representation in all facets of society.  With this initiative, we aim to give access to diverse books to our diverse community.
