The Middle Grade Minded team wants to help spread some love today. During a recent storm in Nashville, TN, Christiana Elementary School was hit pretty hard. Many classrooms were destroyed and with it, the teachers and students lost their libraries.
Please see the news story here: https://www.facebook.com/newschannel5/videos/10154403777887548/
Since we are a community of writers, readers, teachers, librarians and general book lovers we are hoping as a group we can help them rebuild. The classrooms hit hardest were 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade classrooms, but the school in general could use some help.
If you are an author who can spare a copy of his or her own book, we know the school would love a signed copy made out to the students of Christiana Elementary. If you don't have a book out but you'd still like to help, please gather any new or gently used picture books, chapter books, and even MG and YA books together and ship them after April 3, 2017 to the following address:
Book Donations c/o Dena Oneal
4701 Shelbyville Highway
Christiana, TN 37037
I know these teachers and students would appreciate any and all donations to help rebuild a bit of what they lost in the storm.
Thanks in advance and feel free to spread the word.
