Arts Briefs for Oct. 5

Book drive to benefit Alternative Horizons

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Maria’s Bookshop, 960 Main Ave., will host a book donation drive for Alternative Horizons from Oct. 8 through Oct. 28.

Alternative Horizons continues to build a therapeutic book library for children, teens and adults to provide support and education through bibliotherapy. Through the use of books, children and teens can safely explore issues of abuse, violence, depression and feelings.

Maria’s will be a central site to order and purchase books, and will offer a display on Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the resources to help customers choose their donations.
