The Clarksville/Montgomery County Arts and Heritage Development Council is planning an alphabet book about our community titled “C Is for Clarksville on the Cumberland.” This book will be an ongoing fundraiser and a tool to promote our community.
Each letter will be represented by an interesting person, place or event unique to Clarksville and illustrated with an original work of art by a local artist. The book will retail for $20-$25 and should be available for the 2014 holiday season.
A community-wide contest for each alphabet letter begins today and will end on February 28. A select committee of experts will determine a winner for each letter. Choose a letter for a particular person, site or event that relates to Clarksville and, in 45 words or less, write a paragraph about your topic. Material submitted should be appropriate for all age levels. To submit your idea, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to AHDC, PO Box 555, Clarksville TN 37041, and include your name and contact information. Winners will be recognized at our release party.
“C Is for Clarksville on the Cumberland” will highlight the history, culture, environment, and geography that make up the city’s rich and unique heritage. Proceeds from the book will be used for community projects that highlight Clarksville’s vibrant arts activities and rich cultural heritage.
