Taking inspiration from similar programs in other cities, she launched Buffalo BookBike in 2015, which gives free books to the children of Buffalo in parks and playgrounds throughout the summer months. The BookBike has given away over 1,000 books to date, with the hopes of slowing down the summer slide. Her dream is to increase the reach of the BookBike, foster more collaboration between local literacy organizations, and help convert Buffalo parks to open air libraries in the future.

Now he is launching a program called Play 15 which will utilize the good points about gaming to teach reading, writing, and problem-solving to kids who are in the situation he was once in.

Is Cranbrook ready for this?
When I think about what it takes to build community and connect people I think about being inspired and discovering something new that opens my mind even if its just a little bit. I also want to think beyond myself and frankly, to get over myself. When I'm in a room with people who have the guts to share their stories, to be as vulnerable and courageous as you need to be- I think thats a risk that deserves respect. Cranbrook- we are going to get to know each other a little bit better this week. Thank you for being brave enough to explore this new venture together. Pecha Kucha Cranbrook, volume 1... here we go!
