In early November at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center in Bloomington IN, Centerstone Indiana celebrated the launch and reading of Bobo’s Books 1.1.1, Volume 2 to benefit teens in Stepping Stones, a program of Centerstone, who are experiencing homelessness.
Bobo Books is a collaborative project between Ivy Tech Community College-Bloomington, Ivy Tech English professor, Stepping Stones, a program of Centerstone, The Joy of Film and Hemlock House Press.
Proceeds from book sales funds will support safe transitional housing, street outreach programs and wrap around services provided to more than 100 homeless or at-risk youth ages 16 to 20 years old in Bloomington and Monroe County. Transportation assistance is especially important for youth so they may attend school, secure employment and learn the basics of self-sufficiency like grocery shopping and getting to the doctor.
With the holidays around the corner, Bobo’s Books 1.1.1, Volume 2, available through Amazon, would make a great gift that will give twice – once to the person who receives the book and once to help at-risk teens.
