If you’ve visited our About Us page here, you know that Ellen’s staff knows and cares a lot about children as well as children’s books and publishers. We’d like to invite all of you to join us in honoring Martin Luther King, Jr during this long weekend by taking part in a child-supporting initiative. Join us in making the holiday a Day On rather than a Day Off.
Several of us are participating in a local Nashville event Monday: Ride for Reading’s Warehouse Cleaning. Others are sorting new adult books destined for More Than Words‘ youth-run bookshop. Wherever you are, you can find a service in need of volunteers and Monday is the perfect time to commit to one that speaks to your skills and can gain from your involvement. Check the MLK Day of Service site and join us, virtually, by acting locally.
How will you spend the long weekend?
