Where we stand on books for boys
The books are still arriving at InsideOut Writers for the Book Fair for Boys. We are going to give the project a week for the dust to settle and then we'll share how many books arrived, how the library is being set up (there are so many books we might have books in more than one location as there are three juvenile detention centers in LA County) and what the boys think. Keep in mind though, as awesome as the response has been we are still looking at about 300 books for 2,500 boys. This is just the beginning of our commitment to this project and we look forward to what comes next.
