    The American Booksellers for Free Expression’s online auction of more than 50 works of art created by children’s book illustrators is open on eBay through Monday, June 8.

    The auction, which supports the free speech rights of kids, features many original works and high-quality prints by leading artists working in the book industry today. Among the items up for bidding are pieces by Rosemary Wells, Eric Carle, Robin Preiss Glasser, Bruce Degen, LeUyen Pham, and Vincent X. Kirsch. 

    The eBay auction complements the ABFE Art Auction to Benefit Free Speech in Children’s Books, held on Tuesday, May 26, at BookExpo America. Both auctions support the Kids’ Right to Read Project (KRRP) and Banned Books Week, the national celebration of the freedom to read. KRRP, which was founded by ABFE and the National Coalition Against Censorship, helps students, parents, teachers, librarians, and booksellers fight book censorship in schools and libraries.
