“Divergent” Author Veronica Roth Shows Her Abnegation Side; Launches Charity To Get Books To Kids In Need

Best-selling author Veronica Roth wrote about the selfless Abnegation faction in her young adult series, “Divergent” and now she’s using that concept to get books to underprivileged kids this holiday season. “#AbnegationDonation” is partnering with nonprofit group “First Book” for the month of December. For every $2.50 donated through this link, Roth’s publisher HarperCollins will donate a copy of “Divergent” to First Book.

This isn’t Roth’s first work with the charity. HarperCollins also donated books to First Book for sales of tickets to her tour this summer promoting “Four: A Divergent Collection.”

Roth and HarperCollins will be promoting the campaign on social media using the hashtag “#AbnegationDonation.” So please help spread the word and the gift of reading with kids in need this holiday season! Go here to show your Abnegation side. Happy Holidays, Initiates!
