Authors for Henryville

On March 2nd, tornados ripped through Southern Indiana, killing 14 people and devastating several communities. Among the towns that were practically erased from the map was the small community of Henryville. Its elementary, middle, and high schools were torn apart, shredded, and flattened. All the books in the school libraries were ruined.

Some students have lost their homes while others have lost loved ones. All of them will have to be bused to various nearby schools in order to finish out the school year. It is too early for us to even know what the future holds for them or how soon the Henryville schools will be rebuilt and reopened.

But, no matter what, Henryville needs help! And so this group of Hoosier authors are inviting writers from all over to help us raise funds to either restock the Henryville school libraries or donate to the Red Cross.

In the coming days, we'll be listing all the wonderful signed books, book swag, and any other goodies that the generous writing community is offering as prizes for donating to the Henryville cause.  We'll also let you know exactly how to donate to help and get a chance at one of the fantastic prizes!
