Bookstore Wins James Patterson Grant
Mrs. Dalloway’s has received a generous grant from James Patterson’s foundation: Read Kiddo Read. Children’s Book Buyer Anne Whaling, who submitted the proposal, said the grant will enable the store to award a $100 gift certificate to every Kindergarten and First Grade teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District. The awards will be administered through the BUSD. The books purchased at Mrs. Dalloway’s through this grant will enrich individual classroom libraries.
