Come join us next Thursday, May 3rd for a special SLA social! In honor of our third annual book drive, we’ll be meeting up during happy hour at Rock Bottom Brewery in La Jolla from 5:30pm-7pm. This is a great opportunity to help support the Words Alive children’s literacy programs.
We can’t collect textbooks, reference books, travel guides or overly worn books or damaged books (broken spines, torn pages, completed puzzles, etc.), but everything else is okay! The donations go to various places around San Diego County like child development centers; Head Start centers; San Diego Center for Children; Monarch School for Homeless Youth; and the Armed Services YMCA. Please help spread the word and consider bringing new or gently used books in English or Spanish for ages 0-18. To learn more about Words Alive, their mission and how you can help, go to www.wordsalive.org.
SLA members and non-members are welcome to attend. The more the merrier! If possible, please e-mail me at lauren.rasmussen.sla[at]gmail.com to RSVP. This way we can try to save enough room at the bar. See you there!
