Grammy Award Winning Duo
The Indigo Girls and
Internationally Best-Selling Crime-Thriller Author Karin Slaughter
Join Forces with Benefit Concert to Raise Funds for Save The Libraries
Grammy Award winning musical artists, The Indigo Girls and Karin Slaughter, Internationally best-selling crime-thriller novelist and founder of Save The Libraries, have announced a special benefit concert to raise funds for libraries in underprivileged communities. All proceeds from the concert being held on January 3, 2016 at Terminal West in Atlanta, will go to the Save The Libraries Foundation.
The Indigo Girls state, "We are excited to collaborate with our good friend Karin to support her passion, and ours -- saving our nation's libraries in need. We applaud her efforts in founding Save The Libraries and the hard work she has put into making a difference within underprivileged communities."
Slaughter's Save The Libraries Foundation began in 2010. Karin brought in support from fellow authors including Lee Child, Kathryn Stockett, Tess Gerritsen, and Charlaine Harris. Karin's short story, Thorn in My Side has earned the Foundation over $300,000 in income since it was published in 2011. In Karin's recent novel Pretty Girls, which has been on The New York Times Best-seller list since its debut this past October, Slaughter continues her dedication to libraries by including a librarian as a major character in the novel. Currently, Slaughter has sold over 35 million copies of her crime-thrillers, worldwide.
Karin Slaughter continues, "I am so excited and grateful that my friends Emily and Amy are joining me and Save The Libraries to support this urgent cause. We need to help those 80% of children in rural areas who use their local libraries as their only access to the internet and books. These libraries need funding, and we are here to help fill the void."

About The Indigo Girls
The Indigo Girls have built a devout following, sold more than six million albums, earned five Grammy nominations, and have regularly delivered concerts with the fervor of tent revivals and the intimacy of campfire sing-alongs. In addition, they have been staunch political advocates for gay rights, animal rights, and environmental and Native American causes. They have released twelve original studio albums, three live records, various Greatest Hits compilations, a Rarities and a Christmas record. To their credit, the iconic duo continues to challenge itself creatively, over and over again, adding to a body of work that contains such contemporary classic songs as Galileo, Shame on You, Closer To Fine, Kid Fears, Love of Our Lives, Making Promises, Get out the Map, Moment of Forgiveness, Least Complicated and Go.
After numerous Grammy nominations and awards and gold and platinum certifications and decades of touring in clubs, arenas and everything in between, Indigo Girls remain active and relevant, always viewing their music as a fresh opportunity for exploration and discovery. "We really work hard to not lean on any tried and true path in making our albums," says Ray. "So when it comes to writing new songs and working and performing with different musicians, every record and every tour feels like a completely different adventure for us.
