Smoke Gets in Your Eyes. Newsletter – August 2007

It seems that the book-burning bookstore owners in MO aren’t interested in working with PBS to rescue their surplus books. We haven’t heard back from them, and now the “free time” in our schedules is disappearing as the summer ends. So we have taken down the Stop the Fires petition. Thanks everyone, for signing and pledging. We know they had a lot of worthy groups interested…we hope they decided to work with one of those, and have been able to get the books to readers instead of burning them. However, they haven’t told us if and what they decided. If you see a roiling grey cloud over Kansas City, drive toward it with buckets! They may be burning books again. Sigh. We tried. Thanks again to all of our generous members who were so eager to help out; we were really blown away by the response.
