Bookstore Dreams $5.00

I am C. Chérie Hardy, and after serving as a classroom teacher for almost 30 years in public schools, my dream of teaching and promoting literacy is bigger than ever. In addition to writing and publishing books, I am grateful to be able sell great books for reasonable prices. Whenever I am a vendor at various events, numerous customers ask, "Where are you located?"

Thanks to you, I wish to share my love of books with a larger population and open a bookstore, but I need your help. Just by donating $1.00, Avant-garde Books can create a place that you can call "home".

The Avant-garde Bookstore would not just be a place to sell books, but to give a home to independent authors and publishers where they can share their amazing works; a place where teachers don’t have to drive miles to get the materials for instruction and decorating their classrooms; a place where someone can sip on a cup of coffee and read, relax, and write; a place where small groups of people can brainstorm and formulate solutions to issues; and a place where children can engage in creative activities.

THANK YOU a million times for your support!
