How to Vote for The Solon Center for Research and Publishing:
We want to give Maine’s libraries and elementary schools a copy of Clipper’s ABC’s in English, French, Spanish and Japanese. We live in a global community; the earlier children are exposed to different languages, like Japanese, the more perspective they will have. We have permission from the publisher, writer and artist to reprint and distribute the book to all Maine’s elementary schools and libraries.
The Solon Center for Research and Publishing is a 501(c)3- non-profit organization established to encourage the growth of Maine’s communities through educational, literary, scientific and artistic means.
Through our projects we endeavor to help energize the state’s creative economy which in turn can grow jobs and the quality of life for everyone who lives in Maine. Currently we are working with locally based organizations to bring some of our publishing projects to all Maine communities.
