There's a slight chill in the air, and it's time for the holidays -- Accordingly, it's time for Non-Fiction's annual Holiday Blend! Like last year, this year's blend is rich with notes of chocolate and warm, baking spices. Our hope is that this blend is warm and cozy, perfect for enjoying with the whole family by a crackling wood fire.
Holiday Blend always has a giveback, and we're truly honored to have Desert Island Supply Co. in Woodlawn as our beneficiary this year. For those that aren't familiar, DISCO is a non-profit creative writing and publishing center, who work primarily in the Birmingham city school system to give students the tools necessary to explore and document their worlds. A portion of proceeds from every bag sold of the Holiday Blend will go to support DISCO's work in the local community.
More on Desert Island Supply Co's Local Work:
The Woodlawn Writers Corps is a collective of nearly 700 elementary, middle, and high school students at Oliver Elementary, Avondale Elementary, Putnam Middle School, and Woodlawn High School. The students in the Corps meet weekly throughout the school year for curriculum-aligned creative writing workshops, during which we explore how poetry and language intersect with history, science, math and the arts. The writing workshops are designed to be challenging and fun, with the main goal of strengthening the students’ writing skills, intensifying their intellectual habits and giving them the creative tools they need to explore and document their worlds.
At the end of each year of the Woodlawn Writers Corps, the Desert Island Supply Co. publishes a book of student poems and hosts a book launch for students, families, and school staff at our Woodlawn headquarters. All students get published, and all students receive a copy of the anthology. Proceeds from book sales go toward sustaining the Woodlawn Writers Corps.
