What if your heroes are found in the bookstore instead of the ballpark? What if books are your game?

Novel-T offers an opportunity to express your support for the all-stars of literature. For those who feel a connection to certain writers or characters – be it Walt Whitman’s expansive exultations, Huck Finn’s mischievous morality, or Bartleby’s inscrutable insubordination – these super-soft, jersey-style tees are the way to “wear your read.”

The first “team” of nine players, representing a selection of writers and characters from the American literary canon, will take the field for the first time at the official Novel-T launch on 9.20.09 at Freebird Books in Brooklyn. New teams, featuring an increasing roster of domestic and foreign players, will join the Novel-T Word Series league shortly.

To help ensure that there will always be new names to add to the Novel-T line-up, Novel-T donates $1 of the purchase price of each shirt to 826NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills.
