2017 Storybook Gala

Mirrors, Windows, Doors


May 17, 2017
6:00pm – 9:00pm
The City Club of San Francisco

Mirrors

Mirrors are important to validate a child’s self-worth by showing characters that look like them, and situations that they experience. These stories help all children know they are important, worthy, and valued.

Windows

Windows provide a way for children to experience lives, situations, and events that they may never be exposed to in everyday life. These books build a child’s imagination, critical thinking skills, and empathy.

Doors

Doors are the opportunities that open up when a child reaches school ready, in love with books and learning, and strong in their self-confidence and empathy for those around them.

Join us...

for an evening celebrating the joy of stories!

Children's literature

plays a powerful role in shaping childhood experiences and children’s self-image.
