Jess Ewing and Literati’s Founding Story

My first love was reading. I remember every page from a hand-sewn “quiet book” gifted to my mother when I was very young—the feeling of the felt apples that you could “pick” from the tree on one page and tying a shoelace on another. Books stimulated my brain and sparked the love of literature and learning that I carry with me to this day.

1 Million Books Donated and Counting

We encourage members to use their Literati box to send back any books their child has outgrown—whether they came from Literati or not—for donation to children and schools in need.

Through our partner programs, we’ve been able to donate over a million books to Title 1 schools and communities in need.
