Auction Raises Money to Restock Libraries After Hurricane Sandy

The Center for Fiction has launched an online auction, raising money to help rebuild school library collections in New York City that were “damaged and displaced by Hurricane Sandy.”

The auction items include a wide variety of items, including Daily Show VIP tickets, a stylish Olympia Le-Tan Moliere Book Clutch (pictured)  a one-week stay at the Morgan Bay Beach Resort in St. Lucia, and a Writers Studio Membership at The Center for Fiction.

Here’s more about the program: “We are passionate about getting kids reading through our Books For NYC Schools/KidsRead program, which donates 30,000 books to over 70 area schools and community organizations in need and brings 400 students to The Center each year to meet and engage in workshops with the authors they have been reading in the classroom.”
