Nevada Reading Week 2015 March 2 – 6
Donated books will be personally delivered by King to kids in at-risk schools during Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour: Nevada Reading Week 2015. Each year during Nevada Reading Week, King visits students at local elementary schools to teach the importance of literacy by reading stories and performing tricks from his show. Thanks to book drives held throughout the year, at the end of the assembly, each child is able to take a book home with them. For many kids this is the first book they can call their own. Local businesses and organizations interested in joining forces with Mac King by hosting a book drive to benefit Nevada Reading Week 2015 can email Lauren@preferredpublicrelations.com for more information.

About Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour:
Comedy-Magician Mac King has been a life-long advocate for childhood literacy and since settling down in Las Vegas, has made it his mission to promote literacy in Southern Nevada.

For years King has visited local elementary schools, spreading the importance of literacy to local students. In 2011 King decided to take his philanthropic efforts to the next level and launched Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour, a citywide literacy initiative to foster the love of reading and rally community organizations to raise books for Las Vegas school children.

The tour kicked off during Nevada Reading Week 2011 and since then has collected more than 10,000 books by partnering with several local organizations including: Las Vegas Wranglers, Springs Preserve, Winder Farms, Sky Zone Las Vegas, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria and Las Vegas 51’s Baseball Team.
