‘Cat’ helps donate books to childrenThe Cat drew the winning name of Marianne Legg of Edmonds.
The Cat in the Hat, a.k.a. Greg Malcham, goldsmith at Comstock Jewelers, and Erin Comstock drew the winning entry from the month-long book drive for literacy through the Seattle Alumnae Club of Pi Beta Phi for local literacy organization Page Ahead.
Books for the cause were discounted by the Edmonds Bookshop during October Literacy Month and each donation warranted an entry for a pair of pearl stud earrings. The Cat drew the winning name of Marianne Legg of Edmonds.
One of the donated books entitled “How Dachshunds Came to Be” was donated by its local author Kizzie Elizabeth Jones. The new books will be donated to children in Washington State whose households do not own even one book with the goal of giving young children the love of reading.
“Even though Literacy Month is officially in October, we are more than happy to accept new books for this cause year around,” proclaimed Comstock.
