    The ABC Children’s Group at ABA and the Children’s Book Council (CBC) are partnering to bring back the popular Silent Art Auction and the Children’s and Teen Choice Book Awards Announcement in a joint program. The event will benefit American Booksellers for Free Expression (ABFE) and Every Child a Reader.  National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Gene Luen Yang will serve as honorary chair of the event and will announce the winners of the Children’s and Teen Choice Book Awards, the only national book awards program where the winning titles are selected by young readers. This year’s Silent Art Auction program will also celebrate the 75th anniversary of Random House’s Little Golden Books imprint, which began in 1942. The auction will feature a special selection of works celebrating the Little Golden Books legacy as part of a year-long marketing and publicity campaign.
