Our nonprofit is proud to announce our affiliation as a Region-at-Large Partner for the 2019 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, the longest-running national recognition program for creative teens in grades 7-12. Past Alumni from the Award’s nearly 100-year history include Truman Capote, Sylvia Plath, Joyce Carol Oates, and Stephen King.
We had a great time in Booth #168 at the largest book festival in the country. Our members had their books on sale: Gwen C. Katz, Kathy Dinisi, Davida Siwisa James, Kim Y. Nelson, T. Faye Griffin, and the San Fernando Valley Branch of the California Writers Club. Our nonprofit’s “Blind Date with a Book” was a big hit!

Our nonprofit is privileged to have had a couple of these wonderful fundraisers through Barnes & Noble, where a percentage of the sales for a given week are targeted to a specific nonprofit. We will let you know when another of these is coming up and provide you with the code to enter for purchases in store and online. Please give us a call at 760-900-6822 or email email@example.com if you might be able to help staff the table during one of the book fairs. AND…remember how important it is to support brick and mortar bookstores!
Our Executive Director, Davida James, worked with The Town of Apple Valley as a consultant on “The Music Man”, the first live theater production for the Town held at its Amphitheater.
