Literary Luminaries Sign Sarah Palin Book for Charity

palinbook23.jpgAt the 2009 National Book Awards, Gawker cornered some of the literary world’s brightest writers, having them sign a copy of Sarah Palin‘s memoir, “Going Rogue.” Now they are auctioning the book on eBay for charity.

Signatures now include NBA Fiction winner Colum McCann, actor and Columbia MFA graduate James Franco, and author and publishing figure Sloane Crosley. On a semi-related auction note, the handwritten Bible we so carefully covered sold for over $15,400.

Here’s more about the auction: “All proceeds from the auction will go to Save The Children. They’ve done great work bringing literacy programs to kids in need across the country, among other great things they’ve done for kids that otherwise don’t get things done for them that should be.”
