Katie McCleary, the Executive Director of 916ink, is my guest for Episode 26. 916ink is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering students in the Sacramento area through creative writing and encouraging literacy through these writing endeavors (over half of children in the Sacramento area don’t read at their grade level). Katie and 916ink have published several books and a comic book anthology (curated by my past guest Eben Burgoon) written their young authors.
Be sure to make a donation and support 916ink’s efforts to get children to fall in love with reading and writing.
This Saturday is the First Annual Walk4Literacy, of which 916ink is a partner. Walk4Literacy is raising funds to help literacy programs in our community. It kicks off on Saturday, October 25, at 8:30 am in McClatchy Park in Oak Park and ends at the Sacramento Convention Center.
