Rise Up Foundation is so excited to be partnering with the Lexington Public Library system and Alane Adams, along with Alane’s award-winning mobile game, BattleKasters, for this summer’s library reading program. After spending 2015 touring the game to fancons across the country, Rise Up is thrilled to be sponsoring Alane’s school visit and library tour for 2016-2017!

BattleKaster’s is the location-based game that introduces kids to the characters, creatures, and objects in Alane’s award-winning Legends of Orkney series. The game gets kids excited about reading by playing a fun, scavenger-type game that motivates them to pick up her book and discover more about these characters. In addition, Alane will be spending time in Lexington visiting schools and talking to kids about why she thinks Reading Is A Superpower!

“I love being able to get out to schools and see the looks on kids faces when they play BattleKasters,” Alane said. “Not only do they think it’s the coolest thing, but I have their parents lining up to thank me because they have never seen their kid so excited to read a book before!”

If you’re in the Lexington area, join our founder at one of these events! If you would like BattleKaster’s and Alane to come to YOUR school or library, contact us!
