Press Release: June 13, 2020
2Leaf Press, a black/brown female-led nonprofit press founded in 2012, has launched its new merchandise collection of t-shirts and mugs, READING IS GOOD FOR YOU, available for sale on Zazzle.

Vasser-Elong, and Lynn Levin, along with a few famous literary names, who share their passion for reading. The design is vibrant yet straightforward, and cleverly uses the t-shirt’s and mug’s canvas creatively.
The READING IS GOOD FOR YOU merchandise is perfect for people who love to read, write, and everyone in between who wants to support 2Leaf Press and the poets and writers it represents. The t-shirt, which is pre-shrunk and made from 100% cotton, is available from size S to 4X. Wear it and people will stop you on the street and ask, “Where did you get that t-shirt?” The ceramic mug, which is microwavable and dishwasher safe, is available in two sizes, 11-ounce or 15-ounce, with the rim and handle vividly glazed in rich color. It is great for keeping your favorite beverage warm while sipping and reading your favorite 2Leaf Press book.
