If you haven't heard already, YA author Patrick Ness reached out to his readers and writing community on twitter yesterday to raise money for the refugees flooding into Europe. Ness tweeted that he would match up to £10,000. Within hours, big name authors like John Green, Jojo Moyes, Rosamund Lupton and many others promised to match the following £10K. With the help of the writing community and the support of countless every-day people, Ness's outreach has raised almost £200K and is still growing. For us Americans, that's 303,804 dollars. That's amazingly crazy! Follow the action on twitter. If you'd like to donate to the cause, here's the link to Ness's fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving.
Books Inc. is very excited and honored to be hosting Patrick Ness October 8, 2015.
