A small group of passionate educators gathered in August to begin a journey.  Each telling their story of innovation, creativity, change and personal growth.  These stories, with the help of Dr. Robert Dillon, have come together to truly highlight the amazing stories of our region.  Without a publishing company, without pre-sales, without support from many foundations we sought for financial support, we persisted.  Our region's educators deserve to be heard, celebrate their success!

Join us for our second of three book release parties!
