NCAC partner organization and Kids’ Right to Read Project co-founder the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression is hosting their annual auction of children’s book artwork. The auction will be held in the River Pavilion at the Jacob Javits Center at BEA tomorrow (Wednesday) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
This year’s auction is in part an homage to beloved author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, who passed away a year ago at the age of 83. Many of the works for auction were inspired by Sendak’s legacy. Authors Jack Gantos and Lauren Myracle will be co-hosting the live auction segment of the evening.
Proceeds from the auction will in part support the Kids’ Right to Read Project.
