Join FLOC on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery, for our Eighth Annual Book Festival! The Book Festival is an opportunity for FLOC students and their families to celebrate the importance of reading and literacy. Last year, with the help of our sponsors and book drive partners, FLOC was able to give away over 1,170 books to the 73 students that attended the event.
This year, we are pleased to partner with Teaching for Change to provide our students with inspirational and thought-provoking books featuring stories about diverse young people making a difference in their families, communities and the world.
To support FLOC’s Book Festival, you can purchase one of these moving children’s books from Teaching for Change’s book store at the 14th Street Busboys and Poets.

Students will be able to pick brand new books to bring home and add to their own personal collection thanks to your generosity!
This year’s event will feature local children’s author Debbie Levy who will read excerpts from her book We Shall Overcome: The Story of a Song.
