All sorts of records were broken at this year’s Books for Breakfast—Boston recorded the coldest high temperature ever for November 13 and the annual event brought in more support than ever before—a whopping $191,615.

View some fantastic photos from Books for Breakfast here.

The morning was filled with many memorable moments: Legacy performing her powerful poem, Carla and Betiel—826 Boston student alumni—sharing what 826 Boston has meant to them, and former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power encouraging us to “lean on” and share our stories.

A huge thank you to our generous donor community and to all of our Books for Breakfast event sponsors. We couldn’t do this without you! And don’t miss this video from the event, featuring Carla and Betiel when they were students at Boston International Newcomers Academy.
