The Betsy-Tacy Society has launched a KickStarter online fundraiser. For the next 60 days we're accepting pledges to raise money to pay for recording, design and manufacturing costs for a new musical companion to Maud Hart Lovelace's Betsy-Tacy books. We are so excited to work with singer Maud Hixson and pianist Rick Carlson! Go to this website to view the video and make a pledge to help us reach our goal:…/maud-sings-maud-a-musical-betsy-tacy- If our goal isn't reached, this project will not happen.
