Part surprise party, part handwritten mail, and best of all, you can wear your comfy pants and not even leave home. Mystery Book Date is a new virtual celebration hosted by SLD Read to support our work of improving literacy outcomes in Michigan. Mystery Book Date is a blind-bag style book destash. Each book, lovingly donated by friends in our community comes wrapped in unassuming paper with a brief description of the book on the front. Supporters can request a certain genre, but beyond that and a few clues, they won’t know what sort of adventure awaits under the wrapping. You have the opportunity to pre-order Mystery Date Books through our event website, and then you can join us on October 15th from the comfort of home for our livestream event. During the event, you will have a chance to learn more about the work that SLD Read is doing, hear right from our students the impact that our tutoring has on their education, and of course the opportunity to buy some books throughout the evening.
