Camel Book Drive

Masha Hamilton is heading up a worthy project.

Recently, from Buzz, Balls & Hype:
20 More Authors Needed

Two weeks ago I blogged about author Masha Hamilton's (THE CAMEL BOOKMOBILE - APRIL '07 Harper Collins) drive for authors to donate boxes of books to Kenya after her trip walking through the bush with a real camel bookmobile that operates in isolated Northeastern Kenya near the unstable border with Somalia.

To date 80 authors have volunteered to send a box of book and are all listed on her webiste along with their bookcovers.

She needs 20 more authors to reach the magic number of 100 author donors.

Won't you please visit the Authors For African Literacy site that Masha set up, read about the effort and then pass on the information about this worthwhile effort via your blogs, writers groups, agents and publishers and see if we can't get just 20 more authors to help.
You can find out about the drive here:
Camel Book Drive
If you are a reader and booklover and would like to join in the effort, please see the Community Support page for ways to help.

See the complete list of authors to date who have pledged their support.
