On our unofficial official holiday — 826 Day — we celebrate all things 826: our dedicated staff and volunteers, our incredible students and educators, our newly published young writers, and all of our amazing supporters.
From coast-to-coast, 826 chapters will be celebrating in-person at their writing centers and stores. Drop by to celebrate book releases, hear student writing, participate in writing workshops, receive store discounts, and more!
Check out what’s happening at your local 826 chapter below!
At their writing center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a special guest author will be doing a reading and hosting a mini-writing lesson. Stop by for food, arts and crafts, fun, and more!
