More than 100 pieces of original children’s art that will be auctioned during BookExpo America are now available for preview online as part of the Annual Children's Art Auction and Reception on the evening of June 6. Sponsored by the ABC Children’s Group at the American Booksellers Association, it benefits ABFFE and its defense of the free speech rights of young readers. The usually silent auction will include some live bidding this year. Author Walter Dean Myers and his son, illustrator Christopher Myers, will act as auctioneers. A preview has been posted here. Tickets are $95 ($75 for bookseller members of the ABC Children’s Group) and can be purchased here.
