St. Anne Institute Book Drive
St. Anne's is a residential and therapeutic facility for at-risk girls ages 12 to 18 from all over New York State. It has been in operation since 1887. [ . . . ] If you are an editor, an agent, a publishing bigwig, a published author, an aspiring writer, or simply a concerned citizen, please consider donating whatever you can.
There are a few ways you can help:
1) If you have books on-hand and would like to ship them, please contact me via my webpage. [Eric] will forward you the mailing address and you can ship boxes by media mail.
2) If you'd rather donate books by phone, [Eric has] made arrangements with The Little Book House, an independent bookseller in Stuyvesant Plaza in Albany. You can drop by the store or call in and order a book at (518) 437-0101. They have a wishlist from the teachers, librarians and students and you can select something from the list. They've even agreed to offer a 20% discount for books slated for St. Anne's.
Eric is also having a contest related to this. Click here to visit his blog and read more about the book drive and the contest.
