N4P: Florida BookPALS

By Alyssa Zirkman | December 27th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools) is a signature children’s literacy program of the SAG Foundation designed to provide an opportunity for performers, gifted in the art of storytelling, to help develop a love of reading in children and give back to their local communities.
Research shows that one of the best predictors of children’s success in learning to read is being read to aloud. BookPALS was founded on the premise that children must be exposed to reading aloud to develop a love of reading.
Every month SAG Foundation BookPALS read to more than 60,000 children in Title I public schools, hospitals, libraries, and social service agencies. The SAG Foundation operates BookPALS branches in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, New England, Florida, and Arizona.

If you are interested in this program and would like to become a BookPAL or you are a teacher or principal who would like to request a BookPAL for your classroom, contact Natalie Rogers, the Florida BookPALS Director at nrogers@sagfoundation.org or you can call her at 321-229-0638

N4P: Brian Cuban-Eating Disorders Do Not Discriminate

By Alyssa Zirkman | November 15th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Men and body image are usually not associated with each other. More and more we hear about the issue of photo shopping women’s bodies to make them look thinner or in some places bigger. There is a lot of media attention on just how ridiculous the body proportions are supposed to be for females aspiring to that ultimate goal of beauty and really acceptance in society. But what you don’t hear very often are the stories of men who struggle with the same issues of body acceptance. Those men who you’d never assume even think about body image. Brian Cuban talks to Shelly about his experiences with anorexia and bulimia and how he overcame those eating disorders with the right support system. His book, Shattered Image, recounts his life story.

For resources on eating disorders you can head over to the counseling center at the University of Miami or call them at 305 284- 5511
