Painting for Peace starts conversations across the nation

March 20, 2015

 

 

 

We're excited to share that Painting for Peace in Ferguson has been featured prominently in media nationwide, and grateful for the response we've received to the book. We were even fortunate enough to have been asked by Arianna Huffington and the Huffington Post to contribute to their "Impact: What's Working" column. 

 

Paperbacks are flying off the shelves, hardbacks are in stores now and we are in the process of printing a second edition already! We also had the great honor of making the #1 spot for Bestselling Children's Book in St. Louis 2 weeks in a row. 

 

Thank you all for all of your support. We couldn't have done any of this without your art, your love and your help every step of the way.

 

The more books we sell, the more we can do. 100% of the profits from the sales of Painting for Peace in Ferguson will go to the Greater St. Louis Community Foundation, to given to youth, arts and small business recovery programs in North St. Louis County.

We have two events coming up - one at Rooster on South Grand and an author event and panel discussion with St. Louis County Library. Check out our events calendar and come out to be a part!
