I’ve been asked to participate in an event at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital that I’m very excited about: Raising Spirits with Reading (RSR). Organized by Amanda Litz of Traveler’s Trunk Publishing, RSR brings a group of local children’s and YA authors and their books to the 206-bed children’s hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For a couple hours later this fall, we’ll be hanging out with the kids, doing readings, and at the end of the time, personally autographing an age-appropriate book for each child in the hospital. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?
We’re currently seeking sponsors to help with the costs of bringing that many books to the kids. T-shirts are being made up, and if an individual donates $75 or a company donates $250, their names will be put on the back of the T-shirt. But don’t let that stop you! Even $5 or $10 can help brighten a sick child’s day.
