Virtual Book Fair – January 15 – 31, 2021
Rozzie Bound raised $300 for Friends of the Haley, donating half of all proceeds from the sale of books for young readers during the last two weeks of January. You can still check out the shelf we created for the fair here: https://bookshop.org/lists/friends-of-the-haley-pilot-school-book-fair.
“A big shout out to our local bookseller Rozzie Bound! It’s a win-win situation when a school community can support a local business and a local business can support a local school.”– Liz Sherva, Co-Chair of Friends of the Haley Pilot School
The book fair also received nice press coverage in a piece by Jeff Sullivan in the Bulletin weekly newspapers for West Roxbury/Roslindale and Hyde Park: “Rozzie Bound Books hosting fundraiser for Haley book sale”
