The FOLD Challenge - The FOLD

The FOLD Challenge

Reading and listening recommendations that encourage booklovers to thoughtfully consider their reading lists and ask one important question: Who’s missing?

Are You Ready for the Challenge?

What are you reading? Who’s missing? The FOLD’s Reading Challenge encourages booklovers to diversify their reading and their listening by asking one important question: Who’s missing?

Each year, the FOLD releases a twelve-challenge list in January, focusing on one challenge per month for the duration of the year. Every month, the FOLD releases a blog compiled by one of our planning team members that includes a list of recommended titles to help you along.

Each month, the FOLD features one of the challenges, providing suggested titles through a monthly blog.

For readers who may not read as many titles throughout the year, pick a few challenges that will enrich your reading list and your life.

As we say at the FOLD, diversity always takes more work…but it always reaps better results. So grab a book and get reading – and check back here for more.
