Last Wednesday, January 6, the American Business Women’s Association’s (ABWA) Novi Oaks Charter Chapter held a Book Unveiling at the Novi Public Library. The book unveiling was held to celebrate an initiative taken by the Novi-Oaks chapter last year to have its members donate books celebrating Women’s History to the Novi Library. On January 6, 34 books were added to the library’s collection.
Within this collection, Christina Spagnuolo [Concord], owner of Antina Promotions and Executive Board Secretary of Novi Oaks, donated a book to honor Antina Promotions’ Certification as a Women Owned Business, which was obtained last year. The book that was donated is called “Rachel Carson – Preserving a Sense of Wonder” by Thomas Locker & Joseph Bruchac. It is a biography about a young girl who had a passion for nature and offers an inspiring story of her life. Rachel Carson ended up being the author of the book “Silent Spring”.
For those who do not know about ABWA, it is a National Organization who’s mission is “[t]o bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support, and national recognition.” (ABWA Novi Oaks Website)
