Buy a Book, Help an Artist

Creativity and friendship intersect in As Is, a collaborative book of poetry and painting published by the El Paso Community Foundation. It features poems by Dorothy Ann Leach and Jacquelyn Stroud Spier, and paintings by Susan Amstater and Connie Dillman.

All proceeds from the book will support the Women’s Voices Fund, which they established in the El Paso Community Foundation to help fund women’s and children’s creative projects.

The women, lifelong friends, brought this collaboration to life on stage October 9, 2016 when they read poetry, showed paintings and discussed how their friendship inspired their creativity in As Is … 2 Painters and 2 Poets. It opened the 2016-2017 season of the El Paso Community Foundation Jewel Box Series in the Philanthropy Theatre.
