John Bassett http://www.basglas.com

for responding to the GMG post last week calling for   Volunteer artists and illustrators to assist local writers with their book submissions! There are three or four writers hoping to find a match. John made the generous offer of use of his images for a book applicant, plus the possibility of creating new work in response to their book. If you or an artist you know would like to volunteer please email capeannreads2016@gmail.com.

It’s easy to register for the Cape Ann creates for Cape Ann Reads children’s picture book contest
