The wonderful team at We Are One Japan have added Beers for Books as part of their Kyoto showing of the global pop-up film festival Future Shorts and you are invited!
Please join us on Sunday, August 26th for an evening of film and every drink you have on the evening will fund one local language book via Room to Read.

Note that seating is limited to 100 and you must reserve your ticket. Details in English and Japanese on the page above.
For those of you new to Beers for Books, the concept is simple: For every drink you have,100 yen will be donated to Room to Read and that buys a treasured high-quality local language book for children. We'll also be featuring a fun raffle to fund additional books for kids.
