Give The Gift of Justice Sotomayor's New Book to Oyster/Adams Bilingual School

In 2010, HBA-DC signed agreement with Oyster/Adams Bilingual School to support the school’s Latino students and their families. The school recently asked the HBA-DC for assistance with purchasing 75 copies of the Spanish version of Justice Sotomayor’s new book, Mi Mundo Adorado. The books will be donated to the Oyster/Adams middle school library and will become mandatory reading for all 8th grade students for years to come! This request from a teacher came in late in the budget year and the school did not have money left in the budget to purchase the book. If you have read the book then you know how powerful the life story of Justice Sotomayor is and how amazing it would be to have read that book in the 8th grade.

The Oyster/Adams school worked with local book store Politics & Prose to purchase the books and to get a discount. To donate a book, or more than one book, please go to this link and use the discount code "OYSTER”. The total cost for each book is $25.15. The book store will collect all of the books and arrange for the school to pick up the books so you will not have to pay shipping fees. Please purchase your book no later than May 1, 2013! Thank you in advance for your donation!
