GalleyCat Readers Help Soldiers

warriorlib23.jpgEarlier this week, GalleyCat readers responded to “an urgent need” by generously sharing audiobooks with military personnel overseas through Operation Warrior Library.

According to organizer Audrey Herbst, the program received a heartwarming response from our readers: “we have received more than 20 offers of audiobooks in the last day … it looks like we will have several hundred CDs getting to Germany in time for Thanksgiving … GalleyCat helped us collect over 1,500 books this year, more books than we raised since the inception of the program!”

Organized by novelist Paul Malmont and Col. George Reynolds, this literary supply chain ships books to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. If you are a writer or publisher looking to participate, you can write warriorlibrary [at] gmail [dot] com or visit the website for more information.
