Presents for Peru
Our 2017 Christmas Book Campaign is to publish a creative journal supporting reading and writing in the rural communities of northern Peru.
This year, Sarah's Rural Library Fund is helping the Rural Libraries community in Peru to publish a new series of books to inspire reading and writing.
The series Leo y Escribo (I read and I write), features several stories related to Indigenous life and will include blank pages for recording their own stories and ideas.
The first two books in the series are Los ojos de Gabi (The Eyes of Gabi) by Alfredo Mires Ortiz, and Masa (Mass) by César Vallejo.
The creative journals contain inspirational words, stories and poems with pages for the readers to add their own thoughts, stories and ideas.
The Eyes of Gabi - a book about the life of Gabi, a little girl with cerebral palsy, and the rural community's journey to acceptance of disabilities.
