King Soopers in Conifer, Colorado annually lets the local Kiwanis Club set up tables to sell Joe Wheeler’s books – with all proceeds going to the local elementary schools and home schools in the Conifer area.  This year we were able to raise $3,468.59 for the project.

In the process of helping people purchase Joe’s books, I purchased many books for my own friends and family — and was able to work with Joe and get to know his work.  You can discover his books, and other things he offers, on his website:     www.joewheelerbooks.com
