African diplomatic corps to attend Books For Africa 35th Anniversary Gala on September 13

In celebration of 35 years of promoting literacy, Books For Africa (BFA), the world’s largest shipper of donated books to Africa, will be hosting their 35th Anniversary Gala on Wednesday, September 13. Themed, “A Book for Every Child,” the event will be held at The Depot in Minneapolis and will introduce an upcoming Rotary International project to ship more than 100,000 books to South Sudan.

“I hope the attendees of this event will gain a perspective of how far Books for Africa has come and all of the people we have helped over the past 35 years,” BFA Executive Director Patrick Plonski said.
