A Good Book Drive: Rebecca Slaven


A Good Book Drive is an annual book drive to bring stories to a new generation of readers, and support kids in need of new books. Running through the month of November, A Good Book Drive will be inspiring Vancouverites to purchase a new copy of their favorite kids’ book and deliver it to set locations throughout the city to be donated to this year’s book drive recipient, Vancouver literacy program The Writers Exchange.

A Good Book Drive has teamed up with a great group of independent Vancouver retailers that will each house a Good Book Box. Here you can drop off your favorite kids book and personalize your donation with a special bookplate, sharing the story of why that book is special to you.
