One of my kids is in theater arts. At a parent meeting this week, the teacher informed us one of the ways we could help was to donate books--used or otherwise. Apparently, they have the kids turn stories into plays for an assignment.
For what it's worth, I don't think they act these out on stage. They just do the writing part to study how to make scripts.
Anyhow, since I know so many wonderful writers, I thought I'd put this out there and ask if you'd help. If you can donate books in paper, e-book, or PDF form (anything, really), please let me know. I'll hook you up with one of the instructors so you can get your questions answered and work out any details. (He's an incredibly cool and laid back guy, but I'm sure he'll appreciate not having his email plastered across the internet. *grin*)
Regarding content, although YA and tame NA would probably be best, don't worry. The teachers review these before the kids get their hands on them. And any unsuitable paperback donations can be traded at the local used bookstore for other things they can use.
I hope you will take a few minutes out of your day and help this worthy cause. You'll get a warm fuzzy feeling, my undying gratitude, and (hint, hint) a little free advertising out of the deal. ;)
In case you hadn't heard, EJ Wesley's latest installment in the Moonsongs series, Dragon's Game (Moonsongs 4), released this week. Woot! A tasty snack of paranormal goodness just in time for Halloween!
I've already read it, and I can assure you, it's good. :)
