Ta-dah! Dan Gutman‘s genius idea has come to fruition! As of today, you, too, can own a copy of Recycle This Book: 100 Top Children’s Authors Tell You How to Go Green, (Random House) in which, well, 100 children’s authors share their “go-green” ideas. I happen to know one of those authors quite well (ahem) and have it under good authority her suggestion revolves around a particular type of table linen. Following Dan’s lead, I have ordered a bunch of these paperbacks to donate to the schools I visit. I’m honored he asked me to participate and pleased to help our environment in this small way.
In celebration of the book’s release, and inspired by Betsy Bird‘s recent post in which she passed on how some bloggers are using their cyber-powers to change the world (okay, to benefit libraries and literacy groups!), I’m asking you to send in your best tip for being a “green” writer. For every comment I receive, I will donate $1 to Page Ahead (up to $150), my favorite literacy cause. The best tip — selected in a purely subjective and secretive manner — will earn the contributor a signed copy of Recycle This Book (disclaimer: signed only by moi, not all 100 of the ‘Top Children’s Authors’. Sorry.).
Bring ’em on!
