    Helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy

    Update: We raised $6,600 for the Red Cross! Thanks to everyone who participated. As we've watched friends and neighbors dig out from Hurricane Sandy, the A Book Apart team has been moved by the enormous effort and the goodwill of the many volunteers and city employees working to get the area back on its feet. In an effort to contribute to that recovery, A Book Apart will be donating 15% of sales on Monday, November 5th, to the Red Cross. All orders placed before midnight EST will qualify.
