Riverhead Raises Nearly $5,000 for Libraries Without Borders

RiverheadLibrariesWithoutBordersRevisiting our early June post about Riverhead’s Fundraiser for Libraries Without Borders, this month-long campaign has now generated nearly $5,000 in donations, with one week left for people to contribute.  Anyone who makes a donation of $250 or more receives a 3D head of the author of their choosing. Riverhead Design Labs partnered with Leblox to create 3D heads of some of the imprint’s most iconic authors, such as Junot Diaz, Marlon James, Ann Lamott, and Lauren Groff, among others. So far, Junot Diaz is the more popular 3D head, with Anne Lamott a close second.

Libraries Without Borders is doing incredible work bringing books, tutors, computers and more to the refugee camps in the Middle East and Europe to help Syrian refugees. Riverhead Books is committed to not only amplifying and celebrating unheard voices, but also doing what they can in the fight for global literacy and access to technology.  Go to this website for more details and to contribute by June 30:
