Autism Awareness Book Fairs
Sponsored by Barnes & Noble Booksellers and the Alaska Autism Resource Center (AARC)
Thanks to everyone who joined the AARC at Barnes & Noble in Fairbanks on Saturday, April 20th. Krista James and Anne Freitag had a wonderful day talking with everyone who came into the store.
Special thanks to our very talented performers:
Richard Cox, guitar and vocals
Meryem Krugzruck, flute music
Cocktail Sauce Jazz Combo
Funds raised from this event will be used to purchase books on autism that will be distributed to rural Alaskan public and school libraries. This year we will buy Julia Cook's "Personal Space Camp", and the related teacher guide.
If you can't come into the store, you may order online at www.bn.com, or by fax or phone -- just mention the autism book fair or the voucher number (Bookfair ID # 10904787).
