Innovations in Reading Prize, 2014
“At the National Book Awards black-tie gala, where books of finalists are heaped on every table, free for the taking, it’s easy to forget that not everyone in America has access to meaningful books when they need them most.
“That’s why it warms my heart to see how this year’s Innovations Prize winners are all reaching underserved readers: children of low-income families, of military families, and of tribal families, Latinas in American cities, and women in prison. The Levenger Foundation is proud to lend its support to these most worthy endeavors.”
—Steve Leveen, National Book Foundation board member,
co-founder of Levenger and the Levenger Foundation,
sponsor of the Innovations in Reading Prize.
