James Patterson is continuing the Patterson Partnership with Scholastic Book Clubs for a fifth year, this time pledging $1.25 million to libraries in classrooms. He will give 4,000 teachers grants of $250 each (with Scholastic Book Clubs offering matching funds in the form of bonus points) to buy books and other materials for the classroom. He is allocating a quarter of a million dollars for 500 new teachers (those with three years of experience or fewer), who will receive $500 and equivalent bonus points.
While you are here, please take a moment to support Locus with a one-time or recurring donation. We rely on reader donations to keep the magazine and site going, and would like to keep the site paywall free, but WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to continue quality coverage of the science fiction and fantasy field.
