Fly with the Doves Book Circle Membership

National Library at Sarajevo

You can make a difference in helping spread peace through the written word — the driving mission of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize — when you join DLPP’s new Fly with the Doves Book Circle Membership Program.

Like the Prize itself, this program acknowledges that every voice matters and encourages every person to participate. DLPP currently shares a limited number of winning and nominated books with local schools and universities so educators can incorporate them into their curriculum with students, as well as into their libraries—but we can only do so much without funding. DLPP wants this program to soar locally, nationally, and internationally, and when you join, you can help us reach more people locally and around the world with these powerful works of literature.

The first recipient of books funded by our Dove members was the National Library at Sarajevo’s City Hall in Bosnia. This library, fire-bombed during the Bosnian War, when almost two million books including many rare volumes were destroyed, was restored to its original glory in 2014. We sent a complete set of DLPP awarding-winning books (2006-2016 and beyond) to Bosnia as our gift to them.

For every $25 you contribute when you join, a book will be donated — plus — as a member you will be listed as one of our Doves in the virtual “Fly with the Doves Book Circle” on the DLPP website (coming soon) and in the event program.

Or if you prefer, by checking the box on the next page you can make a continuing monthly membership contribution. You can cancel the automatic payments at any time, but automating your donation will help us ensure the continuity of the program benefits. (The minimum monthly amount is $5.00.) Thank you!
