Buy our poetry and music CD, benefit literacy

This week Kelsey and I had the opportunity to warm up the crowd at Read to Succeed’s Celebrity Spelling Bee, an annual event in which brave citizens of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County compete in a spelling contest to raise awareness and funds for literacy here in our home county.

“Cholera” was the word that won the contest, as reported here by the Murfreesboro Post. More impressive than any spelling feat, over $58,000  – a record amount – was raised to benefit Read to Succeed and its programs, which include adult and family literacy, English as a Second Language classes, and much more. I’ve been involved with Read to Succeed for several years on its One Book Community Read project, and I can’t say enough good about the people and projects of this organization.

We had our new CD, Decent Pan of Cornbread, for sale at the event, with $5 of every sale benefiting RTS. Several folks expressed an interest but didn’t have a cash or check with them at the event, and of course it is shopping season, so we’ve decided to continue that offer through the weekend. So, through Sunday, 11/18 at midnight CST, buy the CD through my online shop for $15, including shipping or delivery, and $5 will go to RTS.

Sample one of the tracks from our CD here on Deep South Magazine.

Our CD is available in several online stores, but for this offer, you must use the “Add to Cart” button next to the image of the CD here in my shop. From there, you can checkout and pay with any credit card. If you prefer to pay by cash or check, or have other questions, contact me and we’ll get you taken care of.

Thanks for your interest in our work and in helping Read to Succeed!
