1.30 pm, Tokyo - ARIGATOU, AbeBooks, for a generous donation to support the UNESCO literacy projects

As was announced yesterday, AbeBooks made a generous donation of 2.000 USD to UNESCO. As all money donated at the ILAB Pop Up Book Fairs today the money will be used to buy "Bouba and Zaza" books for the children in South Sudan.

When AbeBooks representative Colin Laird visited the ILAB Pop Up Fair in Tokyo this morning (local time) the Japanese rare book dealers presented him a Bookcase Poster filled with spines worth 1.000 USD - as symbol for the AbeBooks donation.

Another of these Bookcase Posters will be presented later the day in Portland, Oregon, to Jessica Doyle, who will be report for AbeBooks from there.
