Bridget Zinn Auction - Visit And Bid!
A collection of writers including Jone MacCulloch and April Henry has created an on-line auction to support a young librarian and YA author from Portland, OR. Bridget Zinn was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. This auction has attracted the attention of a host of writers, editors, agents and other folks who have generously donated items ranging from signed first editions to manuscript readings in order to benefit Bridget and help defray her costs.
You can learn more about Bridget at http://www.bridgetzinn.com/blog/
More importantly, check out and bid on the amazing donations at http://bridgetzinnauction.wordpress.com/
The auction closes on May 30th.
It's moving to witness the support of friends for a clearly loved individual, and humbling to see how many in our community are donating and bidding on auction items. I've often thought that children's writers are a generous group, and this fundraiser proves the point.
