Cambridge, MA - "Reader Prom"

  • George Dilboy VFW 371 Summer Street Somerville, MA, 02144 United States (map)

Join Porter Square Books at the Davis Square VFW for our first ever Reader Prom and Book drive. All the proceeds will go to the Porter Square Books Foundation.

Dress up in your finest prom fashion. Bring a copy of your favorite book as your date to donate to the Y2Y Homeless Shelter in Harvard Square. (It’s the only prom where you’re supposed to dump your date at the door!)

There will be free snacks and soft drinks, a cash bar, music, dancing, “after-prom” style games and activities, and, of course, “chaperones (including me!). You’ll also be able to get a formal prom picture with your “date” and a bookish corsage.
