Books for NYC Schools


The Center for Fiction is collecting book donations for the Bronx Envision AcademyThe mission of Bronx Envision Academy is to empower students to be passionate about and well-prepared for their futures, enabling them to be successful in college and their careers. Bronx Envision supports student success through a challenging arts-rich curriculum and intensive internship experiences in collaboration with vibrant community arts organizations. At Bronx Envision, imagination is the key to success, and the learning process in all academic disciplines will mirror the artistic process of skill-building, in-depth investigation, integration of ideas from disparate sources, and process of critique, feedback and reflection. The school has a strong Independent Reading program across all grade levels (9-12). Students are strongly encouraged to make reading an everyday habit. The wish list below would add to their Independent Reading program as well as support Reading Book Clubs in classes. You can purchase copies through our website or send or bring your donation to us.
