We are all set up for tomorrow's event, the Book Drive for Mason County. Here are the centerpieces we made today. I have another commitment tomorrow, so you are hearing about this today. But that will give you a chance to participate if you are local.
Ludington Writers believes that we need to support readers or the writers will be out of business! So we are collecting new and gently used books for children. They will be given (by prior arrangement) to Head Start and COVE. The goal is somewhere around 200 books. Half that number have already come in. Donations also accepted to purchase books.
Come to the Ludington Area Arts Center between 1 pm and 3:30 tomorrow for a chili lunch. Suggested donation for lunch is $2.50, and bring one or more books to donate.
Volunteers today were cleaning the gently used books that have been donated.
Then the books were arranged for display.
We hope this will be a great way to help others put books in the hands of young readers with a little chili treat for those who donate. Books for children and young people up to about age 16 are acceptable. COVE often shelters families with children of all ages, although the books going to Head Start will be for preschoolers.
In other news: I wrote a half chapter, helped with this project, did more errands, did another volunteer task, and a little contract job. Now I'm trying to finish reading a book!
