It's cost prohibitive for us to print unsold copies of each set so we must print on demand. When strategic partners come on board, it will drive the price down. Below is a discounted price from what we charge per book ($13.99) and it includes shipping costs as well.


Price per set is $130 for ten different titles or if you give the students more variety and donate two sets, additional discount is applied and cost is $250 for twenty different titles. This price includes tax and shipping.

Two Ways to Donate Book Sets: Mail in or Credit Card/Paypal

"I'm passing along the lessons from the Greatest Generation and others who have lived through hardship to future generations. Our subject's humility, sense of responsibility, and work ethic are inspiring. Having a student interview someone with a powerful story to tell is the greatest gift I can give them and those who will one day read their book." Deb Bowen
