HOME: A Cortes Community Anthology
The Housing Committee was formed to make a stable home possible for more Cortes Island residents of all ages and income levels. This year we asked local artists and writers the question: what is home? Then we compiled their answers into a beautifully designed book. Cortes Community Housing is excited to announce the release of HOME: A Cortes Community Anthology.
This book arose as a way of adding a deeply personal spark to the bricks and mortar that will, in time, comprise new community housing on Rainbow Ridge. It is an offering of love and a testament to the doggedness, innovation, community participation and spirit that enables dreams to come true. It features essays, poetry, fiction, memoir & visual art by 18 writers and artists who call Cortes Island home.
And, here’s the best part:
100% of profits from the book will go toward building community centered, non-profit housing on Cortes Island!
HOME, the book, A Cortes Community Anthology is just like coming home. Every time I look at it I marvel at the amazing artistry and the gorgeous colors and magnificent talents that created it, both inside and out. And every time I open the book and read one of the contributions it is like coming home and meeting an old friend… or someone new — who i haven’t met yet. It is a joyous experience.
