Community Partners

We have been warmly received by the community of Newtown, Conn., where our bookmaking workshop took place in April 2013. Here are some of the wonderful folks who have offered us their support:

Newtown Youth Academy: Our Gracious Hosts



HUGE THANKS to our gracious hosts, Newtown Youth Academy, who have opened their doors to us and offered their support every step of the way—especially Mike and Rob, the facility managers who have patiently put up with our messes!

BerylMartin Printing + Design = Our Book Heroes!

BerylMartin Sign

We are incredibly grateful to Frank Brummett and his company, BerylMartin, for offering to print the first run of our Kids Share Newtown book FREE OF CHARGE! Day 4: Paper ArtTheir kind generosity ensures that our Newtown kids will have a finished product in hand just a few short months after finishing the workshop! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Frank and family! Though BerylMartin is based outside of Chicago, we were fortunate and honored to have Frank and his daughters pay us a visit at NYA during the painting part of our workshop! They really got into the creative spirit…as well as the paint!
