Thanks, Savannah JEA

Our board Chair, Melissa Miles was delighted to have been invited to speak at the Jewish Education Alliance on September 21st. Melissa was the guest speaker during “Food for Thought” and spoke about the need for disability representation in children’s literature.

Part of our mission is to raise awareness of the need to diverse books, so it was wonderful to be able to share this with the group.

Thank you Leopold’s of Savannah!

Thanks to a generous donation from Leopold’s Ice Cream on Broughton Street, we’ve been able to print enough copies to donate a book to every school-aged child in the Child Development Centers at Ft. Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield. We missed “Month of the Military Child” in April, but the books are on their way! Thanks so much to Stratton at Leopold’s for making this possible.
