Thankful Thursday

3 things I'm thankful for--

1) Organizations like this Operation Kid Equip, a 501 nonprofit organization is looking for books to donate to low-income & at-risk kids in the Detroit Metro area.  If you have 10 or more books you can donate in one of these age groups:  baby-3, ages 4-8, or ages 9-12 
go here for more info & free postage.

Also, if you're in Michigan, you can drop off books in Troy (one of two places in Michigan I have visited, btw), 

      To donate locally, drop books off at
      OKE Teachers’ Annex & Operations Center 1830 Stephenson Highway, Suite B Troy, Michigan  48083 
      Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 2:30p.m. – 6:30p.m.
      Saturday from 10:00a.m. – 2:00p.m. 


2)  Elizabeth Austen's new poetry book, Every Dress a Decision was just released!  She'll be reading at Open Books in Seattle (a couple blocks from singer Dave Matthews house, fyi) on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

3)  Wendy Call's new nonfiction book, 
No Word for Welcome: The Mexican Village Faces the Global Economy was also just released.  
No Word for Welcome: The Mexican Village Faces the Global Economy


All these writers and organizations that do good work in the community.
