World Book Night April 23rd, 2012

World Book Night 2012

Yes, my friends, 20 copies of
The Lovely Bones to give to 20 wonderful people...mostly deserving students.
This is my student-teacher. She is uber excited!
She, too, received 20 books to give away. Small world, right!?
Me with a copy of the book.
I'm wearing our English Department t-shirt in pink.
"Don't You Ever Interrupt Me While I'm Reading A Book!"
I gave one book to the waitress at Ts Redneck Steakhouse.
It was fun giving books away to my students, strangers, neighbors, one family member (a niece who never reads!) and than eating a lovely dinner with friends. My two year old, Lila Jane, and I want to do it again next year!!!

There were five of us total in my town of 10,000+, who gave away books that evening. That's 100 books passed out to people we felt needed some word nourishment!

Here's a list of the books each of us received
The Lovely Bones
Because of Winn Dixie
The Poisonwood Bible
Little Bee
Peace Like A River
