Reading Between the Wines – Literacy Services Benefit

Literacy Life in the Land of IS

Help spread the benefit of literacy!

Reading Between the Wines’ mission is to build a literate community. By educating adults to become self-sufficient members of society. We advocate on behalf of adult and family literacy. The Adult Literacy League was founded in 1968 to serve the 1 in 5 Central Floridians who have a less than fifth-grade level of literacy. We have since grown to provide weekly classes and one-on-one volunteer tutoring to over 3,000 students. We are constantly supporting and celebrating our students’ successes.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
