School libraries benefit


To the Editor:

We would like to thank all who participated in the recent book fair that was held at the Bunch of Grapes Bookstore, to benefit the Martha’s Vineyard public school libraries. The Kick Off party was great fun, with the opportunity to browse the latest releases and meet with guest authors, Kate Feiffer, Greg Mone, and Colleen Paratore, who so generously donated their time. We’d also like to thank Dawn Braasch and Susan Savory of Bunch of Grapes for being so thoughtful, thorough, and helpful from start to finish. It was a pleasure to team with them in this true community effort.

All of our school libraries were beneficiaries beyond expectations, so on behalf of our student readers and school community, we offer our thanks to everyone at the bookstore and all the children’s department shoppers who contributed to the success of this event.
