You know we love our guys over at GuysLitWire. So let's get the word out about their project full of heart and merit! Check this OUT! And get involved right now. Bravo, GuysLitWire!
Here's an excerpt from their site:
"Today we start the first two week Guys Lit Wire Book Fair for Boys to help the teens incarcerated in the LA County Juvenile Justice System. They have no books - at all - and they need them; they need them desperately.
There are currently about 50,000 incarcerated juveniles in the U.S.....About 300 of those kids (between the age of 12 and 18) are enrolled in voluntary classes through the InsideOut Writers Program. InsideOut is the GLW partner in the Book Fair for Boys.
GLW intends to build a longterm relationship with IOW and run book fairs on a semi annual basis. We also have invited IOW to assist the boys in submitting book reviews to our site. We hope in this way to show them that their opinions are valued and to also give them a bit of writing and publishing experience.
You access the Book Fair for Boys list through the main wish list page. Enter our email: firstname.lastname@example.org From there you can survey the list on one page and after you have made your selections, here is the mailing address:
5850 Brookline Lane
San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
The Guys Lit Wire Book Fair for Boys will run for two weeks and we invite everyone who buys a book to please comment on our site or send us an email and let us know your first name, where you are from and what you bought so we can run a list of how the Fair is going.
Hit the wishlist, buy a book and please, let us know what you think of the Book Fair for Boys."
Go to it, rgz! Rock this drop for Guys Lit Wire and incarcerated youth!
