Books for Africa

-- Quote of the Day --


"A catless writer is almost inconceivable. It's a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bite the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys."

 ~Barbara Holland

-- Non-profit Event --

Have you heard of this new program called Books For Africa?  Our friend in Africa, Stan Almendro, informed us that they have an international fundraising project with various events going on that will help run their non-profit projects that encourage African youth to write and sing and more.  

One of the upcoming events will be held here:

Books for Africa
Sunday, November 30 at 8:00am in UTC+02
Alberton, Gauteng in Alberton, Gauteng


 They also have an event going on via Indiegogo - a crowdfunding platform that pools donations together. Something you might be interested in here too is not only the chance to participate in something you believe in, but also the option of receiving a free book from the organization - a compilation of their youth's work.

Stan has, incidentally, been a guest on our old radio program at least twice over the years.
