I received an email from NewLights Press letting everyone know they’re safe and away from the fires raging in Colorado right now. And, they’re launching a benefit sale to support the Red Cross in their efforts to help people displaced by the blazes. From the email:
As I’m sure many of you know, our home city, Colorado Springs, has been fighting a very serious wildfire since Saturday. The fire tripled in size from Monday to Tuesday. Parts of the city have burned. Over 32,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. Team NewLights is luckily, thankfully, away from the danger zone. And this is just one of many fires burning in Colorado and all over the western US. So always the question: what can we do?
The answer: what we do—make & distribute books. And so on that note, effective today, is the FIGHT FIRE WITH LITERATURE BENEFIT SALE. All money from the sale of all NewLights books & broadsides will be donated to the local Red Cross to help them help people who have been displaced by the fires.
The main item for this sale will be fellow Colo-radical writer J.A. Tyler’s fittingly apocalyptic book ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ [an island]. Click here to buy that book (or any other) to benefit the victims of this on-going disaster.
