Lee Wardlaw

Lee Wardlaw

Author and Poet

For her work after the California wildfires 
From collecting donations of books, to transporting them herself all the way from Santa Barbara to Paradise, CA in an RV, Lee Wardlaw embodies true youth advocacy. She saw a literary need for the children of Paradise and their families, and took upon herself to fill that need, with creativity, compassion and drive. In doing so, she helped recreate something for the children that they had lost in the Paradise fires; a sense of normalcy, escape and community.
