1898 Day Bros. Building Renovation

Friends,

Renovation is the 1898 Day Bros. building‘s only hope to withstand another century. Can you help me because your illustration purchase directly fixes the historic building?

When I was four years old, barefoot and shirtless, I clenched the sides of my radio flyer wagon not knowing what lay ahead of me. Summer’s midday sun baked the asphalt beneath my wagon and Momma’s bare feet. She patiently tugged the noisy wagon up Highway 109 toward an odd truck parked outside Trotter’s Country Store. Momma propped me on her hip, then carried me into the boxy vehicle she called a bookmobile. Standing inside, a librarian joyfully greeted me asking, “What’s your favorite book little man?”

My favorite book would have started like a Disney movie—magical. At four, I couldn’t conceive how words and drawings would eventually impact my rural community of 2,500 people. Since that memorable day, I’ve illustrated over sixty picture books, meet over one million students as a public speaker, and inspired all ages to chase their publishing dream. In 2015, I relocated my company’s book warehouse to the 1898 Day Bros. building, one of the last historic structures from Dawson Springs, Kentucky’s establishment.

The building is perfect for storage, but it could be much more with your help. The renovation of the 1898 Day Bros. building can be achieved through 1,898 sponsorships. Each illustration purchase receives a signed original children’s book illustrations from my private collection of sixty published children’s books.

Your purchase is important to help save the historic 1898 Day Bros. building in need of care and attention. Most of all your support fosters the much-needed inspiration that the littlest person’s words and drawings can affect the world. Please join me in opening another century of new chapters in the 1898 Day Bros. building’s story.

We thank the current supporters for their recent purchases.
