Kristi's Book Club Challenge
U.S. Figure Skating is partnering with Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream to build awareness around the importance of families reading together and support of early childhood literacy.
In celebration and support of Always Dream’s 25th anniversary, we are launching the first-ever Kristi’s Book Club Challenge. The book club will kick off on Sept. 8, 2021 (International Literacy Day), and run through October (National Book Month) and November (National Literacy Month). Registered participants will receive a list of Kristi’s favorite children’s and adult books, opportunities to enter to win prizes and engage with Kristi and other Author’s during our Instagram Live Series, "Conversations with Kristi." You’ll also have the opportunity to raise funds to support literacy.
To celebrate National Literacy Month, U.S. Figure Skating will host a series of Instagram Live conversations with Kristi and our Reading Buddies in the skating family. These special conversations will be held every Tuesday in November with Team USA alumni who also love reading and published their own books.
