Refugee Book Drive

Denise Chavez is the author of The Last of the Menu Girls, the 2019 One Book One Valley selection. In addition to attending her book talk in Edwards this April, The Bookworm invites you to participate in her most recent humanitarian effort, The Refugee Book Drive.

Like Ms. Chavez, The Bookworm in Edwards believes in helping people in need. Regardless of political affiliations, the reality is the refugees at the US/México border are in need of many things. As an independent bookstore located in Colorado, there are so many things we cannot help them with, but together with our generous customers and with our colleagues in the book industry in New Mexico and across the United States, we can help provide books. Please consider helping us help them.

We are supporting the Casa Camino Real Bookstore, located in Las Cruces, New Mexico near the U.S./México border, in facilitating a Refugee Book Drive in conjunction with the American Booksellers Association (ABA).

Casa Camino Real Bookstore will disseminate books to refugee families. They will be working with the Annunciation House in El Paso, Texas, and various hospitality centers on the U.S./México Border, including The Border Servant Corps (BSC)El Calvario United Methodist Church based in Las Cruces, New Mexico, as well as various sister organizations in El Paso, Texas: Iglesia Luterana Cristo Rey directed by Pastor Rose Mary Sánchez-Guzmán, Hope Border Institute, and the Columban Mission Center.

The Refugee Book Drive needs books in Spanish for children and adults in all genres. Click on a cover below to purchase a recommended title for the Refugee Book Drive. Other Spanish language titles are also accepted. 

We will be collecting these books at the store and shipping them on March 15. When purchasing your book, select "I would like to pick this order up at the store." In the order comments, note that this book is for the book drive. (You will not actually have to pick it up at the store; we will hold it and ship it for you.)

Our thanks to River Dog Books and their vision for this effort! You can download a PDF with more information from their website.
