Second Update Kickstarter NPR News and Massive Thank Yous!

Just a couple of days ago,very randomly put on the radio and what do I hear... the lady speaking of the Salton Sea and none other than Al Kalin and Mike Cohen speaking out - two individuals who portrait and interviews are featured in my book and whose portraits will be up in the exhibitions. With quite a few radio programmes and newspaper articles, seems as though the media (nationally and internationally are starting to take notice of the disaster that will be!

Here is the link to the programme.

And here is a link to other recent articles that I posted about on my blog:

Every little helps!!! And every penny that goes over the $2400 will go towards printing more of the book. The first of the two exhibitions this fall will also be the launch of my book under the same name. At the moment I have a grant that covers the cost to print 100 books. Any amount that goes over the $2400 will go towards the printing of more books!
