ABFFE’s Holiday Children’s Art Auction Kicks Off Nov. 26!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK, NY, October 24, 2013 — The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE), the bookseller’s voice in the fight against censorship, announced today that it will launch its holiday auction of original children’s book art on Nov. 26.
The week-long eBay auction will feature work from the leading artists and illustrators working in book publishing today. More than 50 artists and illustrators contributed to last year’s auction. “The Holiday Children’s Art Auction will give people around the country a chance to purchase wonderful holiday gifts and support free speech,” ABFFE President Chris Finan said.
ABFFE is continuing to solicit art for the auction. The deadline for submission is Nov. 15. A donation form has also been posted online.
The holiday auction is the online version of the children’s art auction that is held during BookExpo America (BEA). Both auctions help support ABFFE’s defense of the free speech rights of kids. The BEA auction will be held on May 28 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the River Pavilion of the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
