The Website Landmark Education News recently wrote about the SELP project of Nick Johnson, which involved the creation of Pelican Post, an organization that gathers books to be sent to a range of different schools in Africa.
Kim Dunsmore was inspired by that project and the self-expression and leadership programme to create her own project that is benefitting Pelican Post – she’s calling it The Big Book Swap. With co-organizer Kim Thomond, they are arranging a fun-filled night wherein person attending brings one or more books that hold importance to them, writing inside why they love the book, and then swapping it for some other favorite book that someone else brought.
In addition to the fun of book swapping, the event if featuring raffles, drinks and donations, all of which will go towards Pelican Post, thus funding great books as well for those in Africa who may not otherwise have access to them.
The event is taking place on June 1, 2010 at the Royal College of Physicians.
