After nearly twenty years and the dedicated work of three authors, Detroit's Historic Places of Worship, a full color book of beautiful and historically significant Detroit churches, is almost ready to print. Due to the high price of printing and promoting the book, our authors have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help cover some of the costs.
Meet authors Marla Collum and Barbara Krueger and learn more about the project here!
Kickstarter is a crowd-funding website that allows many individuals to contribute in small amounts to a creative project. Those who pledge money are rewarded with a variety of special incentives, based on the amount they give. BUT unless a project reaches its "goal" amount by the deadline selected, it will not receive any of the pledges! Marla and Barbara's goal is $10,000 and their deadline is December 31, 2011. We hope you will consider making a donation in any amount to help them reach their goal. You can also share this campaign with your friends and family by visiting our facebook page.
