Reading Room Cliffs Notes: Week of August 24

Reading Room Cliffs Notes is the essential guide to what's going on in the Reading Room for the upcoming week. "Flashback" captures a highlight from last week, while "Foreshadowing" lists the upcoming week's events. Make a visit to the Bryant Park Reading Room presented by HSBC a plot point in your week!  

Flashback to Daniel Lubetzky, Founder & CEO of KIND
Catherine Clifford and Daniel Lubetzky chat about his new book Do the Kind Thing
Last week Daniel Lubetzky stopped by the Bryant Park Reading Room to talk about his new book and what inspired him to create one of America's favorite snacks, KIND bars. Unhappy with the snacking options, Lubetzky launched KIND, snack bars that consist of whole foods and no preservatives. He wanted something that was "KIND" to your body, taste buds, and world. KIND has become more than just a delicious snack, is is an entire movement to spread and celebrate kindness. The kind movement donates money to community projects each month and allows the public to vote on which project they want to fund. Join the movement here!
