Like Civil Rights leader, Rep. John Lewis, you know that putting books in the hands of our most marginalized communities is a way of creating what Rep. Lewis calls Good Trouble:
"We all live in the same house, we all must be part of the effort to hold down our little house. When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just... do something about it. Say something. Have the courage. Have the backbone...find a way to get in the way. To get in trouble. Good trouble, necessary trouble."
Like the character Mrs. Whatsit in A Wrinkle in Time, you are a STAR who offers up your light to fight the darkness:
“A book, too, can be a star, “explosive material, capable of stirring up fresh life endlessly,” a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”
Members who join at this tier will receive an autographed copy of "Growing Up in La Colonia."
In the Harry Potter series, the PATRONUS is a powerful and protective charm, used to ward of the evil Dementors-a phantom species who suck the happiness and intelligence from human minds.
MEMBERS WHO JOIN AT THIS LEVEL will receive an autographed copy of "Growing Up in La Colonia" PLUS 5 Children's Books will be purchased in your name and donated to the community of La Colonia. You will not only be helping to keep the public library open, you will also be putting books directly into the hands and homes of La Colonia FOR GOOD.
