Rosslyn Reads returned to the Central Place Plaza in Arlington Thursday for its annual book festival.
For the second year, the Rosslyn Business Improvement District brought the outdoor pop-up bookstore to the neighborhood. The one day event offers books, CDs and DVD’s for as low as one dollar. Proceeds from sales go toward Turning the Page, a non profit that provides educational resources to local public school parents and young children.
“We help build home libraries, provide news skills for parents on reading aloud with their children, and developing stronger parent teacher relationships. We have development programs to help parents start ans sustain PTA’s, start projects in their community to improve their schools and we access the local museums,” Jason King, President & CEO of Turning the Page.
The book festival will be open until 10 p.m. with live music, and a book signing with award winning journalist, Elaine Weiss.
