In addition to connecting authors and readers, The Tall Poppy Writers believe in giving back. We have individually donated over $100K to literacy and literacy causes. This week, we're hosting an online auction to help raise money for ROOM TO READ. The auction items include signed novels, book club visits, character naming, manuscript critiques, consultations, and query help! (including copies of FAMILY TREES and BRANCHING OUT, along with a Skype/Facetime book club visit by yours truly!)
Why Room to Read? Many world problems can be addressed through one solution: education. Knowing how to read makes people safer, healthier and more self-sufficient — yet nearly 800 million people are illiterate and two-thirds are women and girls. That’s why Room to Read focuses on deep, systemic transformation within schools in low-income countries during the two most critical time periods in a child’s schooling: early primary school for literacy acquisition and secondary school for girls’ education (from www.roomtoread.com).
I hope you can join us! You can find the auction here: https://www.32auctions.com/tallpoppywriters. Thanks!
