Start your holiday shopping early! Bid on a piece of original art by some of the best illustrators out there!
“The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression, the bookseller’s voice in the fight against censorship, is conducting an online auction featuring over 70 pieces by leading artists in the children’s book industry, including Peter Brown, Susan Jeffers, Wendell Minor, Adam Rex and Paul O. Zelinsky.
The eBay auction will culminate during Banned Books Week (Sept. 24-Oct. 1), the only national celebration of the freedom to read. One-third of the art will be auctioned each week with new works posted on Fridays. Items can be located on ABFFE’s eBay page.
In addition to sponsoring Banned Books Week, ABFFE co-sponsors the Kids Right to Read Project with the National Coalition Against Censorship. ABFFE has created a flyer for the Banned Books Week auction that it hopes booksellers will download and distribute to their customers.”
