GA – The Magician’s Hat Signing

Malcolm Mitchell, wide receiver for the New England Patriots, appears at Barnes & Noble on Saturday March 10, 2018 at 1:00 PM to present and sign his new book THE MAGICIAN’S HAT!

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Super Bowl champion and literacy crusader Malcolm Mitchell presents the story of a magician who reveals an awe-inspiring treasure from his bag of tricks — books that make every kid’s dream come true!

This is not your typical afternoon at the library — a magician invites kids to reach into his hat to pull out whatever they find when they dig down deep. Soon — poof! — each child comes away with something better than they could’ve imagined — a book that helps them become whatever they want to be, and makes their dreams come true through pages and words, and the adventures that follow. But each child can’t help but wonder, What’s really making the magic happen?

ABOUT READ WITH MALCOLM:
Read with Malcolm is a youth literacy initiative founded by former University of Georgia wide-receiver and current New England Patriots rookie, Malcolm Mitchell. The organization’s goals are twofold: 1) to introduce book ownership to students in households where reading is not a priority and 2) to improve literacy in schools with below grade-level reading skills. In 2015, Read with Malcolm launched Share the Magic Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, to promote the long-term benefits of being an active reader to students served by Title I schools and underserved communities. To help us continue to inspire young readers, please visit www.readwithmalcolm.com for more information about Malcolm’s youth literacy programs.
