Fall Chapter Series at 29 newspapers after first week of signups

The 2019 KPA Fall Chapter Series begins September 15 and in the first week since the announcement, 29 newspapers representing more than 112,000 subscribers have signed up.

As yet untitled, the 10-week series features the newspaper industry and KPA’s 150th anniversary year.

Again here’s a synopsis and information about getting signed up to carry the series.

Woody and Chloe are in the backyard enjoying a game of fetch. Attempting to impress the Maltese next door, Woody airs one out. Unfortunately, it hits the patio table and shatters Mom’s favorite pitcher. Needing money to replace the pitcher, Woody puts his throwing skills to good use and – with Chloe’s help – takes a job delivering newspapers. Impressed with their work, the publisher promotes Woody and Chloe to custodial engineers and tasks them with cleaning out the storage room. They rummage through gadgets they’ve never seen, discover antique printing equipment, and are fascinated with the stories they read in the newspapers dating back to the 1800s. More importantly, Woody and Chloe realize the impact newspapers have in our hometown, state, and country.

Join Woody and Chloe for the 2019 Fall Serial Story as they help celebrate KPA’s 150th anniversary and pay tribute to our state and local newspapers. Written by Leigh Anne Florence and illustrated by Chris Ware, the 10-week serial story will begin the week of September 15.

It’s a way to celebrate KPA’s 150th Anniversary — 1869 – 2019 — but more importantly to show kids in the classroom and our readership the role newspapers play in the community and always have.

If you have not yet signed up, please email me at dthompson@kypress.com your name, your newspaper, your paid circulation and the staff member to receive all notifications about the Fall Chapter Series.

As has been the practice the last two years, newspapers will pay two cents per paid subscriber to get the materials — 10 chapters, artwork, teacher and schoolroom activities — to publish during the 10-week period. KPA will invoice all newspapers signing up as the series approaches.
