A local band has teamed up with a publishing company to improve literacy rates among New Mexico students.
Reviva is teaming up with Mariposa Music and Community Publishing Kids for the First Annual Book Drive Holiday Show.
The Book Drive Concert will take place Friday night at 8 p.m. at the Launchpad in downtown Albuquerque.
“It’s really important at a young age that kids get exposure to books and they see the importance of how reading can lead to a better future,” Reviva singer and songwriter Chris Brennan said.
The show costs $10, but it’s only $7 if you purchase one of Community Publishing’s books.
They will then be donated to several Albuquerque Public School libraries and to students.
