lol-headerI am more than delighted to tell you that Gemma Open Door for Literacy, a nonprofit organization devoted to helping adults and young adults learn to read, has established a distribution relationship with Ingram Publisher Services. IPS will deliver our books and eBooks to bookshops, libraries and on-line stores across the country and well beyond.

Our relationship with Ingram goes back to 2008 when Gemma first opened her doors. With Ingram’s support, we have grown to this point, achieving a dream to create a nonprofit for literacy. Our mission is to expand awareness and deliver resources to folks who struggle to read. As the country’s largest book distributor, Ingram is able to reach retailers and libraries like nobody else. Their print-on-demand services will make sure that we always have books available. And, as Ingram consistently shines lights on literacy projects, Gemma Open Door is delighted to be a partner.

At the heart of the enterprise are the Gemma Open Door books, offering fresh stories for new readers. With wide spacing, short sentences and chapters, and vocabulary-building text, Gemma Open Doors are high-interest, low-reading level stories that appeal to grown-ups. Emerging readers are people who never learned to read well, people for whom English is not their first language, and, increasingly, reluctant readers. Almost nothing exists for adults and young adults who struggle to read beyond children’s books. With respect, Gemma Open Door gives them a place to start. Now, with the power of Ingram, these small books and eBooks can be found just about anywhere.
