I've also collected new books in my spare time and spare room. But there's still more I want to do...
For instance, a new book for a kid in need serves no purpose if he (or she) has no one reading it to him (or her).
Therefore, it's my goal to find a worthy kid's group in my community, and organize a storytime. In the meantime though, Debi's Kids is still collecting books at Charleston-area Barnes & Noble locations.
But the book drive's coming to a close... today's the last day!
Check out my recent interview (below) with Debi herself, and find out ways you can help (or just keep reading).
To support the cause, you can:
Donate a new book for a child 12 and under, or
Purchase something in store or online from Barnes & Noble, referencing book fair number - 10524338 - to donate a portion of sales to Debi's Kids. (Valid August 1-12)
Since the awkward years of girlhood, I've been scribbling in countless journals. Yet, my desire to write and tell a story intensified after the birth of my first child, Aksel. (Who was diagnosed with autism at 20-months-old.)
With the support of an understanding husband and a dog-like cat, I'm conversing with the world (and baby) about life, love, and the mommy lessons along the way. Oh, and my experiences raising a special needs child, too.
Expect a lot of baby talk without the babble.
