Small Beer, Small Baby, Good Books, Great Charity

Here’s something for the season: Gavin Grant and Kelly Link, owners of Baby Ursula! Small Beer Press, are holding a book sale to benefit The Franciscan Children’s Hospital, where their daughter Ursula (that’s her at left) stayed this year during the first months of her life. (Full story)

Pay full price and a big portion goes to the hospital — or pay the sale price and $1 is donated. Everybody wins.

Small Beer publishes wonderful books, including two I recently read: The Ant King and Other Stories by Benjamin Rosenbaum (surreal and unbelievably fun), and Generation Loss by Elizabeth Hand (frightening and beautifully written). As Gavin and Kelly say, Go wild!
