The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE) announced that it will launch an online auction of original children’s art on November 27. The week-long eBay auction will feature work from leading artists and illustrators working in book publishing today. It is the online version of the children’s art auction that is held annually during BookExpo America. Both auctions help support ABFFE’s defense of the free speech rights of kids. “The auction will give people around the country a chance to support free speech by purchasing wonderful holiday gifts,” ABFFE President Chris Finan said.
ABFFE is continuing to solicit art for the auction; the deadline for submission is November 16. More information about contributing to the auction is available online. A donation form has also been posted.
