Our hearts go out to Sandy Hook, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Please join beloved and bestselling children’s authors and illustrators Robin Preiss Glasser, David Shannon, Pam Muñoz Ryan, Salina Yoon, Candace Ryan, Marla Frazee, Susie Ghahremani, Annika Nelson, Edith Hope Fine, Kathleen Krull, and Arthur Salm for a special book drive and fundraising event to honor the memory of the precious lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Sandy Hook representatives have advised that the best way San Diegans can honor their memory is with events that support our own community. Here is your chance to do just that. Stop by Yellow Book Road to meet some of the most talented and beloved children’s authors and illustrators in Southern California and purchase an autographed book for donation in memory of Sandy Hook.

All books, and proceeds from the sales thereof, will be donated to The San Diego Center for Children, a non-profit organization that has provided expert therapeutic treatment and special education services for children and teenagers with mental health challenges in San Diego for 125 years.

Our goal is lofty: to donate 450 books, representing every student at Sandy Hook, so we need your help in spreading the word. Bring your children, your family, your friends, your students, and your colleagues. All are welcome, for those with or without children.

Because of the special fundraising nature of this event, only books purchased at the event or pre-ordered through Yellow Book Road, are eligible for signing by the authors. However, books for personal use may be purchased and signed at the event as well.

Event includes an opportunity drawing (tickets available at the event) for special limited edition artwork, signed books, posters, gift baskets, etc., that have been donated by authors and/or publishers.

For those unable to attend the event who wish to participate, please contact Yellow Book Road at (619) 955-5188 to pre-order an autographed book for donation.
