Local to Local Book Donation Program Authors Selected & New Non-Profit Announced
Denver, CO. March 16th, 2018 - BookBar announced the list of authors selected for the second annual Local to Local Program. This program kicked off in 2017 as a way for Denver’s school children to receive free books by local authors and illustrators before leaving for summer vacation. In partnership with Rocky Mountain Chapter - Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators RMC-SCBWI), member authors of books for ages toddler to teen were selected. Nearly 3,000 books were then purchased from the authors’ publishing companies and distributed to schools, accompanied by the authors in many cases, to meet the kids and sign their books. David A.
