Fundraiser for 826 Boston - Rent an Author | Centers And Squares

Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Rent An Author For Your Book Club

Read Rent An Author for Your Book Club.  I came across some flyers for this nifty program while shopping at the Harvard Book Store in Harvard Square in Cambridge.

The Harvard Book Store is sponsoring this program.  Book clubs or other small groups who raise at least $1,000 to benefit the non-profit group 826 Boston are eligible to have a private evening with one of four well known New England authors:

  • Julia Glass – author of The Three Junes (I loved this book), The Whole World Over, and I See You Everywhere
  • Tom Perrotta – whose novels include The Abstinence Teacher, Little Children, The Wishbones and Election
  • Jim Shepard – Shepard’s 2005 novel, Project X, about two boys who plan a Columbine-like massacre, won the Massachusetts Book Award in 2005 and his short story collection, Like You’d Understand Anyway won the Story Prize.
  • Donald Hall– poet, memoirist, essayist, and critic was appointed Poet Laureate in 2006. His most recent memoir, Unpacking the Boxes: A Memoir of a Life in Poetry was published in 2008 and recently released in paperback. Two of his earlier memoirs are also among my favorites – String Too Short To Be Saved and The Best Day the Worst Day: Life With Jane Kenyon.

826 Boston is a non-profit tutoring and writing center in Roxbury that works with students ages 6 to 18.  Check out their website for info about the Rent an Author program and a downloadable application.

What a rare treat it would be to have an author attend your book club meeting.  Time to start fundraising!
