Nonprofit organization The Reading Project is hosting a free children’s book giveaway on Saturday, Sept. 4 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at NBHD Brulee Coffee Shop located at 2620 Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem.

The Reading Project empowers and encourages boys to read through a variety of programs which promote self-esteem, reading comprehension and communications skills. The programs involve the presence of an adult male to serve as a mentor to boys.

The organization previously held a Back-to-School Literature and Lunch event where youth discussed the theme of traveling. Other events were held in the winter and on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
