about

Every child has the right to read. Books make this right a reality.

One billion kids lack access to books in their native languages. Forty percent of America’s children cannot afford to buy books. This is a crisis for education, because the best predictor of a child’s success in school is the number of books at home.
 
Ending Book Hunger highlights nonprofit strategies to reshape children’s publishing by creating more diverse books, lowering costs, overcoming language barriers, and promoting mobile reading through digital libraries.
 
Can such efforts expand to bring books to the next billion would-be readers? Lea Shaver reveals the powerful roles of copyright law and licensing, and encourages her readers to join the campaign to end childhood book hunger.
 
Whether you are a teacher, librarian, author, illustrator, bookseller, publisher, or any other kind of book lover, Ending Book Hunger will engage you, inspire you, and change the way you think about books.
Professor Lea Shaver teaches at Indiana University’s McKinney School of Law. Her research on copyright and distributive justice has shaped international human rights law at the United Nations, where she has served as both presenter and expert consultant.
