CONCORD, NH- New England Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell spent some time with young tennis players in New Hampshire, educating them on the value of literacy and the link to sports and beyond. On March 28, Mitchell, along with his organization, Read with Malcolm, spoke at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Concord about his new children’s book, “The Magician’s Hat.”


Reading with Malcolm aims to transform children’s lives through literacy, something Mitchell experienced first hand growing up. In the story, David, the Magician, understands the magical power of books and the positive influence they can have on children. 


Mitchell spoke to a hundred children in total from Advantage Kids, New Hampshire’s largest Community Tennis Association and National Junior Tennis and Learning chapter, members of the Boys & Girls club and the local community. ADVERTISEMENT Advantage Kids sponsored the event through a grant from USTA New England.
