On this episode, Janice sits down with Executive Director of the nonprofit organization, Book Fairies, Eileen Minogue, to discuss how the company sources and redistributes books to under-resourced children on Long Island and New York City.

Eileen breaks down the day-to-day operations of the expanding organization, which grants underprivileged children in Long Island and New York City access to books in their schools and homes. She notes the extent of the literacy gap in the New York City area, emphasizes the pivotal role of reading in a child’s development, and shares how listeners can “do good” through Book Fairies.
