Birthday Gifts

Growing up in Piedmont, SC in the Canterbury subdivision I was my household’s resident book geek and word nerd. I ran after the bookmobile like most kids ran after the ice-cream truck. I also pored over stacks at the Main Library on College Street during every free moment. Woodmont High School gave me teachers that sculpted me. For my birthday, I would like to donate two free libraries to Cantebury community were I was raised and the Whispering Oaks community where I reside. As poet and teaching artists, I have donated my time and efforts to many non-profits throughout the years: homeless shelters, prisons, detentions centers, The Boys and Girls Club, Churches and civic organizations such as the rotary club etc…

I am asking my community to support me in this endeavor. I am hoping to raise $828.00 to purchase the libraries and the posts. I will donate books from my expansive library.
