Trick or Read

Trick or Read is my annual event held around Halloween. Its mission is to spread books and the love of books to kids and adults. We give books out to Trick or Treaters or event attendees. Each attendee brings a book they love wrapped anonymously as a gift for the book swap (an idea whose credit goes to Booktopia, started by the Books on the Nightstand podcast).

In 2017, we’re hoping to expand the number of gift bags to party goers to 30 and include at least 10 books per bag for house holds to give books to trick or treaters.

Giveaway books for adult part goers include:

REBEL SEOUL by Axie Oh
DANGEROUS GROUND by MR Rutter

HOUSE OF FATE by Barbara Ann Wright
