Guys Lit Wire is hosting a bookfair to benefit the L.A. County Juvenile Justice system. They're partnering with the InsideOut Writers program and Powell's bookstore to gift much needed book titles to the program.
The donation program is a only a wee-bit more convoluted than ordering and donating a book from a major online bookseller, but I'm very impressed that they chose to work with an independent bookseller.
Access the Book Fair for Boys list through the main wish list page. Enter their email: email@example.com
From there you can survey the list on one page and after you have made your selections, here is the mailing address:
5850 Brookline Lane
San Luis Obispo, CA
All of the donated books MUST be paperbacks. No exceptions!
It looks as though there have been a lot of generous folk to the site already, but there's still plenty more titles available on the list to choose from.
Totally off the subject, but...I just wanted you to know that I've given your blog a "One Lovely Blog" Award! It's for great blogs one has newly discovered. Here's the post - http://evasbookaddiction.blogspot.com/2009/05/one-lovely-blog-award.htmlReplyDelete
