Donate to the DC-Metro Youth Literacy Grants

While registering for the Nonfiction Award event, an optional donation can be made to the DC-Metro Youth Literacy Grants. Every year the Children's Book Guild provides $500 grants to schools in the DC area. Schools receive funds to acquire books for their libraries, media centers, or classrooms. Schools make their selections and purchases through First Book Marketplace.


* Paypal will deduct a processing fee of 2.9% + 30 cents from your donation.

Order Books!

One More Page Books is pleased to offer signed copies of many of Catherine Reef’s books. We will take orders online until May 24, and books will be available for pickup at the store or shipping as soon as we get them signed by the author. If you have any questions, please email Trish Brown.


*Note: If you are a Guild member who purchased tickets for last year’s events and chose to roll them over to this year’s event, we will donate the sum to the Children's Book Guild DC-Metro Youth Literacy Grants unless you request a refund. If you’d like a refund, please contact Guild treasurer Terry Jennings by May 1, 2021.
