n August 2013, a new program called Literary Lots will transform four vacant lots in Cleveland into six-week summer program spots for children. Each lot will have a theme based on a specific children’s book and will become a space for art and for educational programming, bringing cultural institutions across the city together into inner-city Cleveland neighborhoods. These lots are a creative collaboration to “bring books to life” through the programs designed by artists, whether they are learning activities or fun games. Your donations will be used to help secure these lots, find artists to design them, and hire staff to run them. Most importantly, these lots will bring books to life for kids to enjoy them in and exciting ways.
