Hurricane Harvey Book Club

Hurricane Harvey Book Club is a Facebook group with over 61,000 members from all over the country.  It was started by Kathryn Mills, a second-grade teacher at Wood Creek Elementary School in Katy Members post videos of themselves reading their favorite books for all to enjoy.

“The purpose of this [group] is to bring joy and normalcy to so many that are currently dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey,” Mills says on the Facebook page. “It is a community of readers whose sole purpose is to support and encourage one another through storytelling. Teachers tell their students all the time that books can take them on far away adventures. This seems like the perfect time for these sweet kids and their families to get away from the chaos and fall into some really good books."

There also is a small group following HurricaneHarveyBC (@HHarveyBookClub) on Twitter.
