Today’s Summer Blog Blast Tour Schedule and a Noteworthy Cause
Oh, it is on! The Summer Blog Blast Tour is going on this week. Here’s a line-up of some of the people you can see today:
- Andrew Mueller at Chasing Ray
- Carrie Jones at Writing & Ruminating
- Amber Benson at Little Willow (yes, that Amber Benson)
- Greg Van Eekhout at Shaken & Stirred
Be sure to stop by Chasing Ray for the full round-up each day this week.
And now a word on the current Guys Lit Wire Book Fair for Boys project. You see, at this moment in time Guys Lit Wire is running a wishlist at Powells to get books sent down to LA for boys incarcerated in the LA County juvenile justice system. They’re partnering with InsideOut Writers who teach writing classes in the juvenile halls there and hope to build a library for the boys to use. As Colleen Mondor at Chasing Ray says, "They have no books – none. This will be a huge big deal for them." So check out the GLW Book Fair link up there and give a little. And kudos to everyone for choosing Powells as the online site. Independent bookstores forever!
