Homeless shelter publishes children's book

Posted: Updated:

The Muscatine Center for Social Action operates as a homeless shelter, a homeless prevention program, and a domestic violence shelter. Now, the MCSA has published a children’s book, “BOOTS at Home at MCSA.” The book tells the story of a boy and his mother moving into the shelter.  Boots the cat gives him a tour and makes him feel comfortable.   

Boots the cat moved into MCSA in May from the Muscatine Humane Society.  Books will be sold to the public for $20 and will be available at MCSA’s 25th Anniversary Open House on September 22, or any time after that by stopping by MCSA.  The executive director of MCSA says that sales from the book will be used to purchase additional books in the future.
