Children’s Book Art Up for Grabs at Ci7 [4]

Children's Institute logoTen pieces of original artwork created by children’s book illustrators will be raffled off later this month at the 2019 ABC Children’s Institute [6] (Ci7), which will be held June 26–28 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Ci7 attendees will be able to purchase raffle tickets — $5 for one ticket or $20 for an arm’s length of tickets off the roll — throughout the event. The winners will be called on Friday, June 28, during the Rep Picks Plenary Lunch [7].

While more than 100 pieces of children’s book artwork were auctioned off at the 2019 BookExpo [8] last week, these pieces were held in reserve specifically for the Children’s Institute raffle.

Proceeds from both events benefit the American Booksellers for Free Expression [9] (ABFE) and Every Child a Reader [10].
