PHILADELPHIA - June 6, 2019 - PRLog -- Wizard World is proud to team with Books In Homes USA to help empower girls and boys in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, recognizing that learning to read with understanding is the goal for any child, but some don't have the resources to learn this fundamental skill. Wizard World is asking fans to bring child-appropriate graphic novels, comics, science fiction books, or any other similar reading materials to Wizard World Philadelphia, June 13-16 at Pennsylvania Convention Center Center and leave them in a specially marked donation receptacle near the Special Guest Registration desk.

As a Thank You, fans who donate two or more items to the Books In Homes USA's special initiatives during Wizard World Philadelphia will receive a free pre-autographed celebrity photo from a selection of previous Wizard World guests. These photographs are available to fans on a first-come, first-served basis while supply lasts, one per family donation per day, at the full discretion of Wizard World.

Fans can learn more about Books In Homes USA at http://booksinhomesusa.org.

Wizard World Philadelphia will also include non-stop live entertainment, gaming, exclusive Q&A sessions with select celebrities and autographs/photo ops with top stars such as Ted Danson ("Cheers," Three Men and a Baby), "Once Upon a Time" stars Lana Parrilla, Rebecca Mader and Jared Gilmore, "Gotham" standouts Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin, "The Vampire Diaries" headliner Ian Somerhalder and the "Supergirl" tandem of Mehcad Brooks and Jeremy Jordan and more, along with Wizard World's Master of Ceremonies, Kato Kaelin.

Wizard World events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop culture: movies, television, gaming, live entertainment, comics, sci-fi, graphic novels, toys, original art, collectibles, contests and more.
