The Whirlwind Project is preparing to Launch!

Legacies need to be fed from many sources but Brooks Permissions is the only company that can license the work of the Pulitzer Prize-winning, former Illinois Poet Laureate Gwendolyn Brooks. And our company is the only entity whose sole focus is demonstrating the continuing relevance of her life and work through a broad range of projects, promotions and publications. Now, in the face of the new not-normal, we are struggling to survive.

We have a solution. It’s easy.  And it won’t just benefit us.  That’s why we’re asking you to  —   BUY BOOKS. SAVE BROOKS!

We have set a goal with The Whirlwind Project to sell 1000 copies of SEASONS: A Gwendolyn Brooks Experience during the month of August. Show your appreciation for the legacy of Gwendolyn Brooks by buying a copy from our website for yourself or as a gift. Consider purchasing multiple books at a discount to donate to schools, libraries, hospitals, senior facilities and community centers.  Please: make a purchase, share the mission, donate to those you think deserve to see this representation & help us make a great clamor in our pursuit of survival. As Gwendolyn Brooks would have said: “This is the urgency: Live! and have your blooming in the noise of the whirlwind.”

For the month of August, we will be posting the "Best of Brooks" across all of our platforms in hopes of engaging you and new audiences for this project that will literally either make or break us. We want to continue our work but we need you to do it.

Stay Tuned to our social media for more pieces illustrating the continued relevance of Gwendolyn Brooks.
