Designers that turn heads – and pages!
We’re delighted with the most recent post on Barefoot Books’ Blog, Living Barefoot. It features art students and sculptors Jordan Lynn Mill and Lauren Pulver, who created beautiful pieces of custom art for Raising A Reader MA’s recent Dinner with an Author event. This piece from Barefoot Books tells the story of how our volunteer artists conceived of and created the pieces.
It also tells the story of these young women’s reactions when our fabulous auctioneer and emcee, Jonathan Soroff, spontaneously decided to include the literary art as part of the live auction at the donor dinner. The final bids? $1,500 total for these gorgeous book mobiles. $1,500 means twelve more young children their families living in vulnerable communities will benefit from Raising A Reader MA’s high-impact, low-cost early literacy program. Thank you Lauren! Thank you Jordan! (And thank you Barefoot Books for reminding us of what a great event Raising A Reader MA’s Dinner with an Author was.)
