Support Gaithersburg’s Young Readers: Donate a Featured Author’s Book at the GBF

Posted By: Robin Materese

April 28, 2016

While you are enjoying the great selection of children’s books in the Politics & Prose Bookstore onsite at the Festival, take a minute to select one of the books by our featured children’s authors to donate to a child in need in the Gaithersburg community.

Donating is simple and rewarding. Politics & Prose staff will accept orders at the Festival on May 21. They will then deliver all donated books to Gaithersburg Elementary School Principal Stephanie Brant, who in coordination with the Festival, the City of Gaithersburg and the Kentlands Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa, will get them into the handa-beetle-is-shy2-compressors of the Gaithersburg students.

Look for a special display table in the Politics & Prose tent, which will feature instructions on how to donate and the books available for donation, including:
