The Mile Long Book is an ongoing community based project started in 2014.  At least three hundred people have already participated in book-folding sessions at various locations in Saint Paul, including three Art Crawls, the Riverside Library, three West Side public schools, and visits to the community center at Torre Garcia. It has been extended accross the Mississippi River along the Smith Avenue High Bridge in Saint Paul twice as part of the annual Art on the Avenue Event organized by the West Side Community Organization (WSCO). The unfoldings of the book took place on August 9, 2014 and again on August 15, 2015.  It was funded, in part, by a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council.
