Art, Authors and Belly Dancing: A Trenton Books at Home Fundraiser

Saturday, June 2, 2012.4:00pm until 8:00pm.

Tamara Ramos’ Gallery on the Go, in coordination with Classics Used and Rare Books, is having a fund raiser for the Trenton Books at Home Program on Saturday June 2nd from 4 pm to 8 pm.

The program will include art installations centered around great works of literature,… including the writers of the Harlem Renaissance, Shakespeare, Dr. Seuss and the 1001 Arabian Nights. Artists include Will Kasso, Leon Rainbow, Craig Shofeld, Andrew Wilkenson and others.

Langston Hughes poetry to be read by Trenton’s own Geraldine R. Dodge poet, Doc Long at 5 pm.

Belly dancing performance, for the 1001 Arabian Nights, by Esther DeCew at 6 pm.

In addition, we will line the streets with local authors, each of whom will be selling and reading from their books. Authors include Louise Barton, Tika Bernadette, Karen Boyce, Todd CC Evans, Thierry Lundy, Jon Naar and Tracey Syphax.

The Books at Home Program provides FREE books for Trenton kids. Last year, with your help, we distributed almost $10,000 worth of books to kids in Trenton’s struggling school district. We hope to double that again this year. For more information about the program, visit http://www.classicsusedbooks.com/?page_id=13.

There is no suggested dollar amount for the fundraiser. If you can give, give what you feel comfortable giving. If you can’t, please still come and have a good time!

If you are able to give, checks should be made out to “Children’s Future” and have “Trenton Books at Home” in the memo line. Children’s Future is a 501c3 non-profit and these cash donations are tax deductable.

Sponsors for this event include former Mayor Douglas Palmer, Councilwoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson, Councilwoman Marge Caldwell Wilson and Children’s Futures.
