For those readers who have been following the story of Emmy Cherry, the 10-year old girl killed when a tornado ripped through her Arkansas home, Lynn Wiman, owner of Vintage Books, the bookstore where Emmy spent much of her time, sent us the link to the fund established in her name:
Emmy, a fan of Erin Hunter’s WARRIORS books, along with her mother and father, are to be immortalized in the next Erin Hunter release as Brightspirit. Former WU contributor Vicky Holmes, the brains behind the bestselling series, is giving Brightspirit a major role in the narrative as a tribute to Emmy.
Arkansas has some of the lowest literacy rates in the U.S. The Brightspirit Relief Fund will help spread the love of books to children in Emmy’s community.
If you can, please give.
