Please join RED's brilliant and local young authors Dani Cox, Jordyn Turney, and more for a special Saturday afternoon of readings, and a Kenyan book drive, in proud partnership with LA-based OneKid One World (onekidoneworld.org)
For every copy of RED purchased at the event, we will match your donation and send a copy directly to the Nyamasare Girls School and Orphanage in Suba, Kenya. In an area with one of the highest HIV/AIDS rates in all of East Africa, Nyamasare is a safe haven for girls to dream (and write) about a better life. It's also near Obama's village, where anything is now possible... Our goal for this event is to put 50 books in the hands of these girls.
RED the Book is a collection of personal (sometimes very personal) essays by the next generation of writers--teenage girls--on what fires up their lives today.
"Honest, hysterical, heartbreaking, uplifting--these essays come straight from the true teenage soul. Read this book!"--PAUL FEIG, creator of Freaks and Geeks and author, most recently, of Ignatius MacFarland: Frequenaut! "Unsparingly frank and perceptive, the essays in Red take on politics, pop culture, and body image--and, oh yeah, they're written by teenage girls. Long underestimated and undervalued...they emerge as literature and society's great hope."--VANITY FAIR (booksense)
