Kickstarter for Auntie Katie’s Shop

Dear Liza,

I have told you about Auntie Katie’s bookstore, called Books with Pictures. She sells comics, illustrated books, and other wonderful things for people of all ages, colors, abilities and orientations. She hosts art activities, camps, drawing contests, and creative meet ups. It really has something for everyone.

I have also told you about her new building, a few blocks down the street from her current place. She has bought the old Longfellow’s Books shop and is going to move her shop into the first floor and her home into the second floor. It is a big job!

So she is going to need some help. She is putting on a Kickstarter, which is a way for people to donate money to help her do this big move. She has to pay for movers, as well as close her current shop down, move everything to the new place, set it up, and then start it up again. The Kickstarter will help with this.

She has posted a wonderful video on Facebook at Katie Pryde. Look for Kickstarter, Books with Picture’s Great Big Move! There is a bright drawing of her new building.

I am so proud of her. She dreams big and makes things happen.
