    I'll hand deliver a copy of the book to the Sacramento office of your state Senator or Assembly member; I'll include a letter about this project, describing our shared support for great public schools and teachers in California. You'll also receive the reward from the $75 level – which includes my deep appreciation! (Note: if enough people select this, hand delivery is less costly than shipping and I'll be thrilled to do it; if too few people choose this, then hand-delivery may have to give way to shipping, and follow-up phone calls to the legislators).
