Malcolm Mitchell is the rookie who helped the New England Patriots win Super Bowl LI. 

He’s also the founder of an initiative called Read with Malcolm, which introduces book ownership to students, and works to improve literacy in schools.  Malcolm‘s Share the Magic  Foundation promotes the benefits of reading to kids in underserved communities.

Malcolm is also a bestselling author of The Magician’s Hat and his newest book My Very Favorite Book In The Whole Wide World. 

Malcolm was not a strong reader when he began college, reading only at a middle grade level, but grew to love reading, even joining a women’s reading club. Among Malcolm’s numerous awards and accomplishments both on and off the field, he considers discovering a love of reading his greatest achievement.
