All ages! (Seriously, kids love this stuff.)
Strive Publishing was born out of the need to find culturally relevant picture books for my children, my grandchildren, and as a teacher, for my students. African-American children need picture books that they can see themselves in; African-American young adults need novels that they can relate to; teachers need to engage African-American students in reading; and parents need to buy books that their children will enjoy reading. Moreover, emergent African-American authors need a publisher that knows the value of our stories. Strive Publishing intends to meet these needs.
WHAT HAPPENS AT A "FRIENDRAISER?"
HEAR THE STORY
Gather with a group of 40 people to hear the vision Mary Taris has for Strive Publishing.
SHARE YOUR IDEAS,
WISDOM, AND ADVICE
Join a table to brainstorm new ideas and make connections. Everyone has good ideas. (We really do believe that - we'll show you how.)
GET THE EBOOK
After the event, we format the ideas, quotes, and pictures in an eBook for Mary Taris to use after the event.
LET'S KEEP IT SIMPLE!
Dress casual. Expect refreshments. And good conversation. Meet new people. But leave your checkbook at home. This is a celebration!
