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.
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: A Cortes Community Anthology features:
- Essays, poetry, fiction, memoir & visual art.
- Works by 18 talented writers and artists who call Cortes Island home.
- A full-colour cover with gorgeous new work by Lisa Gibbons.
