" When Ryan first joined book club he refused to read at all. Slowly he became more comfortable but would only read when others his their faces behind a book. To see him now fills me with joy, He's happy to read to the group and proud of how far he's come. For a child with Autism, this is a huge success. Its been life changing for us all."

Allen, father of book club participant, Ryan
