Freedom Riders Foundation B&N Fundraiser 4th – 8th of March! Code: 11305109.

In conjunction with the LA Barnes & Noble Book Signing, a Barnes & Noble BookFair will raise money for the Freedom Riders Foundation.

The Barnes & Noble BookFair code is ID#: 11305109.

Anyone shopping at the Book Signing or at a Barnes & Noble store (ANY B&N store) or even on the web at, or at, from March 4 - March 8, will have 10% of their sale contributed by B&N to the Freedom Riders Foundation, if they just use this id code. So if someone decides to pick up some extra books, or even magazines while in-store, that purchase will also contribute, and any on-line purchases will contribute!

The author’s royalties will also be contributed during this LAUNCH! week to Freedom Riders Foundation. The Foundation, created more than ten years ago, will use the funds raised to make Legacy grants to individuals

who were Freedom Riders and have fallen on hard times, as well as its long-term Mission, to place books about the Freedom Rides, and about the Civil Rights Movement generally, in libraries in Mississippi and elsewhere in the South.
