Buy a Book, Support a Cause

















In June, I reviewed the award-winning novel Saffron Dreams, and interviewed the author, Shaila Abdullah. She contacted me this morning because she's now hosting a book fundraiser to help the Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A., a non-profit organization which helps the most vulnerable population of the world. This is a great opportunity to buy Saffron Dreams at a reduced price and help others in need. Here are the details:

"According to the World Bank, the current global crisis has pushed 90 million people into poverty and is slated to have a disastrous impact on health and education projects in the developing world unless the rich nations begin aiding the poor. From now until September 15, 2009, if you buy a copy of Saffron Dreams using the link below, proceeds from the sale will go to the Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A., a renowned international development organization. The organization develops and promotes creative solutions to address problems that impede development, primarily in Asia and Africa.

Hailed as 'highly recommended' by Library Journal and many other critics, Saffron Dreams is a memorial to the victims of 9/11, a source of strength for the survivors, and a vehicle of understanding for those struggling to make sense of the conflict between the East and West. Saffron Dreams is offered at a discounted rate of $16.95 (reg. $19.95) for the duration of this event. Buy a few copies for friends, family members, and coworkers, and support this great cause."
