Support American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression by bidding on art from Children’s Illustrators
This yearly auction is hosted by the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE) to help support the free speech right for children and ending literary censorship.
The art in this Auction has been donated by leading illustrators in the Children’s book industry. The works included in this auction are original works signed by the artist and high quality prints.
