Founder - Jennifer Dillon - was just 13 years old when she was taken away from her family due to abuse. She was put into emergency shelter but really found solace in reading books. She could get lost in any adventure her mind and imagination were brave enough to overcome. Jennifer's hope with Southern Arizona Book Heroes, is to help children through literacy like it helped her get through her own traumatic experience.
