2017 Spring Thaw Book Drive for Readers in Lesotho

Over 160 books collected! Thank you for your generosity.

All children deserve to see themselves in their favorite stories. To further this mission, with the help of SCBWI-IL PAL member Sarah Hammond, we asked our generous Spring Thaw attendees to bring a new or gently used book for donation. They responded by donating over 160 books! The books collected will be sent to school children in Lesotho, served by Peace Corps volunteer Maggie Shifflet, Sarah's daughter.

You still have a chance to donate through 31 May 2017. Click here for more information.
