On October 1st, join RefugePoint for the kick-off of our #Read4Refugees read-in! The event marks the official launch of a two-week read-in from October 1st-15th.

At the event, you can engage with author ambassadors, learn more about the work that you are supporting, mingle with like-minded do-gooders, participate in giveaways, and enjoy a night that celebrates art, creation, and the kindness of strangers.

There are 25.9 million refugees worldwide, more than 50% of whom are children. Pick up a book and join the world’s most beloved authors for the annual #Read4Refugees worldwide read-in. Donate what you spend on a night out. Stay in and read instead! All donations from #Read4Refugees support RefugePoint, a nonprofit that advances lasting solutions for at-risk refugees.
