About the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

The Book Fairies ONCE UPON A READ-A-THON 2021, is a unique virtual fundraising event that will allow individuals of all ages to participate, at any level, in a month-long reading event in MAY. In addition to fundraising, The Book Fairies are promoting reading as they invite participants to read for 30 minutes each day of the month.

During the month we have amazing guest authors that read their books and answer question on Facebook live. The Book Fairies will also have fun giveaways during the month as well. This year’s event already has about 20 incredible authors – children and adult – who will be participating.


Our goal is to help raise both awareness and funds for The Book Fairies mission of sourcing new and like-new books and distributing them to underserved communities, removing access to books as a barrier to achieving literacy.
