Featuring a conversation with
Kevin “Dot Com” Brown
Comedian | Actor | Educator | Author


Reading Partners New York City is hosting its 7th Annual Read to Succeed Breakfast on Tuesday, December 5 from 8-9:30 am. The event will feature a conversation with Kevin “Dot Com” Brown, a versatile entertainer, producer and writer widely recognized for his role as “Dot Com” on the hit television series “30 Rock.” Kevin bridges the gap between entertainment and academia – he serves as an adjunct professor of African American studies at Hunter College, is pursuing his masters degree from City College, and is a proud Program Success Manager at The City Tutors, an organization focused on empowering the community through college tutoring and mentorship. As a Bronx native, Kevin is committed to leveraging the talent that exists within the NYC university system to drive workforce development and the educator pipeline, values that are closely aligned with Reading Partners.  

Join us for a morning of laughter on behalf of literacy – celebrating the power and interconnectedness of service, volunteerism, and continued learning.  Over breakfast, 150 guests will engage with other professionals who are passionate about educational equity and supporting Reading Partners NYC as we pave the way for a more equitable future.

The Read to Succeed Breakfast is generously underwritten by Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Every dollar raised will support Reading Partners’ mission of helping children become lifelong readers through community empowerment and individualized instruction.
