Profile Books has released four short story collections to support Oxfam's worldwide projects. The four books are filled with 30 original short stories by authors like Hari Kunzru, AL Kennedy, Jeanette Winterson, and Lionel Shriver, and are a wonderful way to support Oxfam's efforts to end poverty and injustice worldwide.
I am always impressed when activism and art partner, and these books are one of my favorite examples.
