Brews for Books benefits Madison Reading Project

MADISON, Wis. — A Brews for Books event at the Olbrich Park Biergarten Thursday night will raise money for the Madison Reading Project.

The group is a local nonprofit that supports educators, families, community centers and other partners by giving them free books. On Thursday night, the biergarten is donating part of its proceeds to support the nonprofit.

“It’s just good for us to be able to chat with people and be in front of a variety of people who may not know all the different ways they can be involved or how they can receive books,” the group’s executive director, Rowan Childs, said.

Those taking part in the event are asked to bring a new or like-new book. Another Brews for Books is planned for August 19 at the Wisconsin Brewing Company. For more information, click here.
