A Note from the Director
April has been so busy that I'm afraid my April eNews is arriving the 2nd of May. Let's call it April 32nd.
You won't be surprised when I report that the Shumla team did spectacularly well at the Society for American Archaeology Meetings in Orlando. You'll see a note from the organizer of the Rock Art Symposium below. Spoiler alert: It sings Shumla's praises...
Also this month, Dr. Carolyn Boyd received the galley proof of
The White Shaman Mural: An Enduring Creation Narrative
. The "galleys" show the pages as they will be printed so the author can make last tweaks. The book is absolutely beautiful. The full color images on almost every page bring the art and the interpretation to life.
This book represents a major shift in the way rock art is viewed and studied. We want to launch it with a "bang," but we will need help. If you are interested in organizing and managing a book signing in your area, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shumla continues to push the limits of what can be accomplished by a small non-profit. You, our friends and donors, make it all possible. We rely on your generosity and, in 19 years, you've never failed us.
2016 is the final year of our five-year $100,000 matching grant offer from our foundation partner. Once again, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar. In this eNews, you'll find a list of Shumla's needs for the rest of 2016. Please take a moment to select a project or item to support. Our gratitude is as limitless as our passion for the "books" we work to preserve.
