Jabez Books' 2023 Book & Business Expo is a family affair!
Celebrating the launch of its Literacy Foundation, "The Blessed Society," Jabez Books is taking a strong stand against illiteracy by choosing to be a gateway to eliminate illiteracy within the community, especially with children. However, we are greatly concerned about adult illiteracy as well.
According to statistics on the internet: *2/3 of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. *1 in 4 children in America grow up without learning how to read. *Students who don't read proficiently by the 3rd grade are 4 times likelier to drop out of school. *Nationwide, on average, 79% of U.S. adults are literate in 2022. *54% of adults have a literacy below sixth-grade level. *21% of Americans 18 and older are illiterate in 2022.
So, this year's Book & Business Expo is about supporting our endeavor to help alleviate illiteracy in America.
Please help us by attending this event, letting others know about it, and signing up to participate in one of our paid offered services.
