Publishers Weekly ran a Literary Spotlight article on Bernie’s Book Bank, which has distributed 3.6 million book to 360,000 kids in the Chicagoland area this year alone!
Sourcebooks is a big supporter of Bernie’s Book Bank, and our own Chris Bauerle was quoted in the article.
Publishers contacted by PW confirm the high regard for Bernie’s Book Bank within the industry. Sourcebooks, which is headquartered in Naperville, a Chicago suburb, was especially effusive in praising the work done by Bernie’s Book Bank in the company’s own backyard. Its mission is “completely aligned” with that of Sourcebooks, insists Chris Bauerle, the company’s director of sales & marketing.
“Brian and the team at Bernie’s are profoundly changing the lives of underprivileged kids and communities by attacking a completely moveable and solvable upstream hindrance of a person’s potential: access to books,” Bauerle wrote in an email, disclosing that a Chicago Public Schools representative once informed him that while Windy City middle-income families on average own 12 children’s books per child, in contrast, in low-income communities, there is typically only one book owned per 300 children.
“The life-changing possibility created by Bernie’s vision of 12 books per year, placed for free and easily in the hands of every underprivileged child, is mind blowing,” Bauerle said.
We are thrilled to share award news for five of our titles.
