Court book drive to benefit Blue Gargoyle program Court Theatre is helping to increase literacy with its "Read to Achieve" book drive to benefit the Hyde Park-based Blue Gargoyle Youth Service Center, which helps more than 700 Chicagoans learn to read each year.

    The book drive, which continues through Sunday, Feb. 12, is being held in conjunction with Court's current production, the Tony Award-winning mystery suspense thriller Sleuth, directed by Gordon Reinhart and starring Nicholas Pennell and David New.

    For a donation of one book during the "Read to Achieve" drive, Court Theatre will offer a $2 discount on tickets to any performance of Sleuth. All donations will go to the Blue Gargoyle, which will use the books in its literacy programs. Books that are not used directly will be sold to raise revenue for these programs.

    Books can be deposited at the Court Theatre box office, the Hyde Park Co-op supermarket or Mr. G's Finer Foods, or at participating bookstores in Hyde Park: the University Bookstore, the Seminary Co-op Bookstore, 57th Street Books, Ex Libris Theological Books, Powell's Book Store and Kroch's & Brentano's.

    "Read to Achieve" is also supported by the Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce, the Hyde Park Herald, the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club, O'Gara & Wilson Booksellers Ltd., the Resource Center and Louis Kiernan, Bookseller.
