About End Book Deserts

End Book Deserts is the brainchild of Dr. Molly Ness, who had the great fortune of growing up in a literacy-rich community. As a former classroom teacher, a teacher educator, a university professor, and a self-professed book nerd, she embraces book access as a fundamental component in growing lifelong readers. Amazed and inspired by the work of literacy innovators, she created End Book Deserts to shine the spotlight on those building book oases in high-poverty communities. Her hope is that by raising awareness and advocacy, the collective stories will help others adopt similar programs to eliminate book deserts in their communities.

Dr. Molly Ness is an associate professor in childhood education at Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education.  She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hopkins University.  After teaching in California with Teach For America, Ness earned a Ph.D. in Reading Education and a Masters in English Education from the University of Virginia.  In 2006, she served as director of the University of Virginia’s McGuffey Reading Center.  She is a prolific researcher and writer that has written three books and numerous articles in top-tiered educational journals.  Dr. Ness holds over fifteen years of teaching and clinical reading experience.
