Community Reads Launches in July!

We are proud to announce our "Community Reads" program.  Modeled after the evidence-based "Raising a Reader" program, our goal is to inspire young people to love books because the adults in their lives read.  "Community Reads" is an adult book club that features a book per month and hosts the author or a topic expert for a "chat".  The adults are invited to bring their children (ages 3-8) who will participate in an interactive reading experience in a supervised environment.

On July 24, 2014 at 6:30 pm, NRCEC welcomes Author and Speaker Kevin Kemp to chat about his book "Brain Tight:  The Answer to Your Purpose".  The event is free and open to the public.  Mr. Kemp will have books available for sale.  The books can also be purchased at and on

The event will take place at the NRCEC offices located at 2700 Hanes Avenue, Richmond, VA.

Please visit our website for other programs offered by NRCEC.  Also, stay tuned as we expand "Community Reads" to include teens.

For more information, please contact our office at 804-329-0191.
