We Are One Rutland

On February 11th, an event was held at Phoenix Books Rutland to celebrate the release of the book We Are One Rutland. This book was written by kids from the Rutland City Boys & Girls Club and designed by students at the Stafford Technical Center. The book is a collection of interviews with people in the Rutland area who bring diversity to the community. All proceeds from sales of the book go to the Boys and Girls Club. Phoenix Books Rutland still has copies available for sale.

During the event Dr. Alis Headlam, who managed the book project, was on hand to sign copies, as were some of the student authors and designers. Rutland City mayor Christopher Louras attended the event and purchased copies of the book to give to the Syrian refugee families who have recently resettled in Rutland. Phoenix Books Rutland assistant manager Will Notte volunteered his time to edit the book and was presented with a copy at the ceremony.
