"We Need Your Help To Get Lori Leak To the L.A. Times Festival of Books 2017 https://hdtk.co/n7Xv0"
— Barrett Clemmensen Powell and 29 other supporters
Short SummaryLori Leak Travels to Paris is a unique book about an African American girl who does something that less than 10% of African -American females do -- she travels outside the United States of America. We - the author and international lifestyle entrepreneur Barrett Clemmensen Powell, and the illustrator, Cannes award-winning animator Kristen Palana - want to take this book to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books in April 2017. With any ecess funds, we would like to also donate one copy to the main library in the state capital of each of the 50 states in the USA. To do this, we need your help. We want to raise the money that it will cost to travel to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books in April 2017 and have an exhibit booth filled with
- copies of "Lori Leak Travels to Paris"
- writing activities for children
- marketing materials such as banner, postcards and maybe even a life-sized Lori Leak that children can stand with and have a photo taken
What We Need & What You GetThe base support we are seeking is the funding to bring this book to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books in April 2017. We are planning to do three rounds of funding the get the entire amount for the transporttion, booth rental and supplies and printing of copies. In total we hope to raise $3750. In this round we hope to raise $1250.
- Exhibition booth $1250-1600 (smallest booth 10x10)
- Marketing materials $700
- Donate 1 copy of the book to the main public library in the capital of each of the 50 states in the USA so that it is available in the library system for any child who wishes to borrow it to read. We will donate alphabetically by state.
- Give free copies of the book to girls ages 6-12 at book signings and other events
- Finally, if there are enough funds, we (Barrett and Kristen) could use them to reduce our transportation costs (airfare) to Los Angeles for the fair
Risks & ChallengesThe risk we face is that we will not get the money to go to the book fair. We had hope to go in 2016 and did not make it. Our hope is to raise the funds to be able to attend in 2017.
