Island Books

May 7, 2009

During a recent visit to Newport/Middletown, Rhode Island, I spent time with my friend June Gibbs. She has been a great supporter of Isis Initiative. When she learned about our latest fundraiser–our Isis Initiative note cards, she took me to her favorite local independent bookstore, Island Books. Judy, the owner, agreed to carry our Isis Initiative note cards on consignment.

We appreciate the support of another local, independent bookstore.

Newport is a great summer destination. If you find yourself in town for sailing, a clam bake, a wedding, the Newport Folk Festival (August 1-2, 2009), the  Newport Jazz Festival (August 8-9, 2009) or a week at the beach, please stop by Island Books on East Main Road. You can support a local business and our global mission of helping women realize their dreams of a college education. Buy a book for a day at the beach. And buy a set of note cards to correspond with your friends and family while you’re on vacation.

Thank you. Oh, and check out the surf at Sachuest Beach while you’re in town!
