About Joy of Reading
To honor her commitment to the Worldreader mission and love of reading, Carolyn’s husband Stephen has established a legacy initiative called “Joy of Reading.”
As part of the initiative, we will develop the CKR Books imprint. CKR Books honors the vibrant life of Carolyn Kroll Reidy by publishing books that give all children an opportunity to fall in love with reading. The imprint is non-commercial and creates books as a social good that children in underserved communities across the globe can read free of charge.
A warm welcome from Stephen
Stephen Reidy, Carolyn’s husband and longtime friend of Worldreader, will welcome you to his home to tell you more about the initiative and ways that you can get involved.
Please confirm your attendance
Carolyn and Worldreader
Carolyn will always be part of the Worldreader family.
For ten years, Carolyn passionately supported Worldreader’s mission to bring reading to underserved children and families. She shared our belief that reading changes lives – that readers build a better world. Worldreader is incredibly honored that our impact is even a small part of Carolyn’s enormous legacy. Read more about her generosity in this note from Worldreader CEO, David Risher.
Worldreader is a nonprofit organization that brings reading programs to children in underserved communities via mobile phones and tablets. So far – and thanks to the incredible support of Carolyn Reidy – we’ve helped over 19 million people read in homes, schools, and communities around the world.
Can’t attend but would like to give in Carolyn’s honor?
If you are unable to attend the event but would like to pay tribute to Carolyn’s life and legacy, you can donate today and share Carolyn’s love of reading with the next generation of readers.
We are extremely grateful for your support and will be sure it continues to advance Carolyn’s vision of sharing books with millions of readers across the globe.
