"Why we sponsored a book"
Book sponsorships pay most, but not all, of the cost of printing a book. That helps us keep prices very low, for book parties, for visitors, and the growing number of Lao people who have enough income to consider buying a low-priced book. We asked sponsors to tell us why they decided to do so.
After many trips here, Nick has become a good friend. His generous sponsorship made it possible to conduct a test that we needed to do: We printed 'What's in the Sky' in both paperback and hardcover versions, and put them in different schools and reading rooms. Hardcover costs more, of course, but also lasts longer. Now we're watching to see whether the extra longevity is enough to justify the extra cost.
