The Decatur Education Foundation has partnered with On the Same Page, a community reading program that fosters literacy by bringing people together around the same book. An assortment of activities are planned around the program such as movie screenings, parties, book clubs, and a grand-finale visit from the author. Hundreds of books are donated to schools and at-risk students. I was honored to photograph the party at the Decatur Housing Authority after-school program where all the kids received their copy of this year’s book. The youngsters bubbled with excitement as they wrote their names in their copy of The One and Only Ivan. I was so enthusiastic that I purchased the book today.
