On April 28, 2014, a devastating tornado ripped through Tupelo, Mississippi.
Tupelo is a close-knit community of 35,000 residents. Although neighbors are helping neighbors, more assistance is necessary in order to bring the four time All-America City Award winner back to full force.
Books for Tupelo is the creation of freelance writer, Book Riot contributor, and Tupelo resident, Emily Gatlin. Each signed book was donated directly by the author, publisher, independent bookstore, or close friend of the author. Each signature is as verified as possible, and auction information includes a photo of the actual signature. Auction listings can be found on eBay and are listed as “BOOKS FOR TUPELO” (username: books4tupelo). Use the menu above for a complete list of authors, books, and collections. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to CREATE Foundation’s Northeast Mississippi Tornado Relief Fund.
