Book drive: update du jour

MCFI's book drive from the Science Fiction Outreach Project has just passed 400 books and we're looking for more! Progress as of March 15th:

In my car:
-- 245 books donated by Ben Yalow
-- 33 books donated at the NESFA Clubhouse, including 17 from Tony & Suford Lewis
-- 28 books donated by Mark & Priscilla Olson

At Toad Woods:
-- 33 books culled from upstairs shelves
-- 66 paperbacks culled from shelves in the Toy Room

At the NESFA Clubhouse:
-- 5 books in the SF Outreach donation box

Already in Chicago:
-- 4-6 shopping bags of books from Neil Rest

Current total: 410 books + Neil's donation

The Prediction Poll remains open. C'mon over and see me demonstrate how I don't know the difference between a circle and a square.

More Book Drives and drop off points
Susan de Guardiola is organizing a SFOP book drive down at Lunacon this weekend. If you're going to Lunacon, you can drop off adult, YA, and kids science fiction and fantasy books there. Novels, short stories, anthologies -- all are welcome! As before, fans can also donate books at the NESFA Clubhouse, and at the NESFA Other Meeting at the Hertels on Sunday, March 25.

Joel Phillips announced there will be a SFOP book drive at Minicon on Easter Weekend. Donated books will be heading to Chicago from all directions!

Donating Books by Mail
If you're not able to bring books to Lunacon, the NESFA Clubhouse, the NESFA Other Meeting, or Minicon, you can still participate in the SFOP Book Drive by sending books to:

Chicon 7
Attn: Science Fiction Outreach Project
P.O. Box 13
Skokie, IL 60076

SFOP recommends sending them via USPS Media Mail.

Please send books by Saturday, March 31 to assure they arrive in Chicago in time for C2E2.

The Science Fiction Outreach Project looks forward to giving away the donated books to readers at the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo next month, and to chatting up fandom and conventions in the process!

And I've got somewhere between 50 and 100 I gotta ship to Chi-town... unless I can find a foolish person to cart them from Minicon there!

Add 'em to the collection box(es) at Minicon! As I understand it, carnyjack and I aren't the only ones toting SFOP books from Minicon to Chicago.

(I certainly hope we aren't, as we'll be transporting a couple boxes in Jack's car.)

So looking forward to seeing you, you Fanzine Guest of Honor, you!
