Magic happens when readers and writers work together.
Think about it. The author creates the story–setting characters on the page where they play out their drama. But it is the reader’s imagination that releases the characters from the two-dimensional prison of the page.
A reader can bring the words of Jane Austen or Herman Melville to life long after the author has taken her or his last breath.
Our hope is to harness this special energy–the power of story–to make a real difference in the lives of those battling cystic fibrosis.
For readers, the Unleash Your Story event is a chance to share the joy of reading. Challenge your friends to see who can read the most pages. See if you can keep up with our Pacesetter reader. Form a team and see how many pages you can read total. All this while raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
From August 31-September 28 every reader in this event has special permission to curl up with a good book. If you’re tempted to stop reading for something silly like doing the dishes, or cooking dinner just remember you must keep reading. It’s for a good cause.
