A Unique Opportunity for Authors & Illustrators to Help

Hamlin Robinson School is holding it's annual fundraising auction on March 5. They are a unique non-profit school (the only one in Washington State) that serves children 1st-8th grade with dyslexia and related language learning disabilities. Many children come to HRS struggling to read, dejected and lacking self-esteem because they've failed in traditional school programs but very quickly the program at Hamlin sparks a joy of learning in them and puts them on the road to success.

For a group of kids who find reading a challenge, they are amazingly passionate about books! Many are also gifted atrists. So, every year at their auction they try to feature lots of books and art. They would love to gather together signed copies of books/artwork by local authors or illustrators. Also, if any local authors are interested, they can put together a 'lunch with a local author/artist & discuss the book' package.
