Help Found a Latino Bookstore in NYC's El Barrio!

I know that I have not posted in a while, and I apologize that my first post in some time comes with a request. But in fact, it is the importance of this request that has inspired me to get back to blogging, despite a packed schedule.

I just funded 'La Casa Azul Bookstore' on IndieGoGo. There is a video on the site that makes the case for this cause better than I ever could, and I encourage you to take a look. Aurora is a hard worker, to say the least, and I know that she will make this East Harlem LATINO bookstore just fabulous! I know that times are tough, but this is an important project for all of us who care so much about Latino literature. More distribution of our books means more readers, means more quality books written by Latino authors. We are all connected.

Check out the video, and contribute if you can, here:

And whether you contribute or not, please let others know about this campaign. Aurora is on a tight deadline; she has exactly two weeks from today to raise a total of $40,000. Why? Because if she does, an anonymous contributor will match that amount, dollar for dollar, and make her dream of opening a Latino Bookstore in East Harlem possible!
