Heaps o’ Books for Hurricane Relief

For the third straight year, Three Points Publishing Author Silvia Acevedo has taken part in Wisconsin’s Novel Cuisine Luncheon put on by Author Liza Weimer and Blogger Heidi Zweifel. The luncheon brings literary types together to dine on book-inspired foods but also to collect and donate books to organizations in need. The recipients of donated books typically include classroom libraries and women’s shelters, offering the traumatized children there a desperately needed diversion. This year, books collected also went to areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.

The awe-inspiring gathering of community-minded authors, publishing professionals, teachers, librarians, book club organizers, bookstore associates, and bloggers donated and shared hundreds of books. Three Points Publishing is gratified to know that our small contribution to this cause will bring someone a moment of relief in truly trying times.

Here are some photos of the 6th annual event. We hope you enjoy them. A special thanks goes to the event organizers and volunteers for taking on such a worthy cause.
