|"Since I believe the book supplements
experience and since I have faith in young people and am concerned that
they read...I bequeath the bulk of my estate to further the personal
reading of young adults."
Margaret Alexander Edwards
The purpose of the MAE Trust is to award grants to librarians who "promote the free reading of teenagers."
