Book Fair for Ballou Sr. High School in Washington, D.C. is winding to a close this week, but there's still time to donate to this fantastic cause. Due to problems with blogger last week, the fair has been extended through Friday, May 20th. So if you've been waiting 'til the last minute, you're not out of luck yet.
The school library had fewer than one book per student. That's unconscionable. Go watch the video if you need more proof. And then go donate. We're hoping to hit 900 books donated by the end of the week--check out the great titles that still haven't been purchased. Even if you can only donate one or two, EVERY little bit helps. And every donor gets props on the Guys Lit Wire site.
Please help spread the word if you can, too. Last year we got the Neil Gaiman Bump on Twitter, but this year we seem to be on our own again, so if you know anyone who might be willing to buy a book, send them over to Guys Lit Wire. Books are purchased via a Powell's Books wishlist, so we're even supporting indie booksellers in the process.
