ABFFE Seeks Help Promoting Holiday Art Auction

The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE), the bookseller’s voice in the fight against censorship, is urging booksellers, artists and other supporters to help promote its latest auction of children’s book art.   The Holiday Children’s Book Art Auction, which supports the free speech rights of kids, will feature more than 70 pieces, many of them originals, by some of the leading artists and illustrators working in the book industry today. It launches on eBay on Tuesday, Nov. 26, at noon, Eastern Time. “We need help telling people about this wonderful source of holiday gifts,” ABFFE President Chris Finan said. “If you have a web site, you can connect directly to the auction using our new web badge. Or you can just tell a friend.”

The web badge can be copied from the ABFFE web site and connected to eBay using this link. It is also available to American Booksellers Association members in the BookWeb DIY’s Designs & Downloads. The art will not be visible until the auction goes live.

The holiday auction is the online version of the children’s book art auction that is held during BookExpo America (BEA). Proceeds help support the Kids’ Right to Read Project, which ABFFE co-founded with the National Coalition Against Censorship, and Banned Books Week, the national celebration of the freedom to read.
