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.
