ENVISION THIS: Reaching out to young people to inspire them to read, write, and create.
Debbie Hilbish is with us to share her vision, passion and mission to inspire students to read, write and create. She reaches out to as many people as possible to share what they do at Student Author Visits, Inc. (SAVI) founded by Larry James, a 70+ great grandfather, artist, writer of music and author of children’s books. Debbie became Chairperson and Secretary at SAVI after retiring from a career with the United States Post Office, publishing books of her poetry, and hosting eight-week authors’ fairs at The Reader’s Oasis book store in Quartzsite AZ.
SAVI started because “America’s economy began to fail in 2007 and millions of citizens are still struggling, plus the fact that the income disparity gap in our country has widened every year for at least the last twenty years has brought us to the point where it’s impossible for many parents to purchase books for their children.” It is a free program provided to elementary fourth grade classes and boys and girls clubs in selected areas. At the beginning of each visit, Larry introduces himself and thanks the students for inviting him. He reads the first chapter of one of the chapter books he has written and illustrated. The children than get to listen to one of the age appropriate songs on our music cd. The question and answer segment is next. Children ask good questions like: How do you write, illustrate, or publish a book? The program usually last about an hour. At the end of our visit each student receives a FREE SAVI PACK which consists of: 1 copy of the signed chapter book, 1 CD with 8 (eight) age appropriate songs, and a BOOKWORM BUDDY BUTTON.
What do you think about student debt? If your like me, you're sitting pretty high on top of a ginormous mountain of school loans wondering, "How in the hell am I gonna get down?!". I was once told incurring debt for educational purposes was ok and a good thing. However, as the years passed, the loans are due, and the reality is...you're not earning enough money to pay the debt back and meet all of your normal responsibities. Sounds like a set-up to me...the notion of a good job falling into your lap after college is pure myth. The reality is a lot of us have part-time jobs and are struggling to make ends meet. So tonight you will have the opportunity to call into our studio and voice your opinion on this matter. As well as offer some sort of solution to an ungoing problem on the behalf of student loans. But in the first hour we will have the pleasure of welcoming into our Diversity's red carpet room, sucessful Author, Ms Kai Storm. She's just hours away from bracing our studio with her presence. Get prepared as she takes us all on a trip into her world of many accomplishments as a brilliant Writer/Author. Stay tuned for this fiya show tonight!!!. Only on blog talk radio.
