"The greatest gift is a passion for reading."

The National Youth Book Conference is your organization—those of you who believe in the power of books and how they can be transformative and positively influential to young people.

Studies have shown that avid readers are among the smartest and most creative people—just what is needed as youths embark on the challenges of their next level of education and beyond.

Our commitment at the NYBC is to be a bridge to carrying disadvantaged youths to the fertile ground of dynamic books and fantastic authors. But we need your help. Enjoy our website to learn more about us and how you can be a part of this exciting journey.
