If you're reading this, you're probably an avid fan of literacy. And, judging by the age demographics of the average NYC partier, you're probably also fairly young. The cocktail-swigging twentysomething was the target at last night's First Annual Literacy Associates Benefit, which is part of the Literacy Partners' latest effort to combat adult illiteracy by reaching out to younger, more social types. They definitely struck the youth chord with guests like Real Housewife of NYC Bethenny Frankel, but Special Guest Caroline Kennedy -- who recently ran a failed campaign for the Senatorial seat vacated by Hillary Clinton -- seemed a little off. Can we young people get Obama next year, please?
