Get Great Art While Helping To Support Free Expression

Come one and come all! More than 70 pieces of art are awaiting their new owners. At the strike of noon on November 26 ABFFE (American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression) will start the bidding on eBay! Artists such as Alexandra Boiger, Eric Carle, Chris Raschka and Judy Schachner have contributed work. Proceeds go to support all of ABFFE's programming and advocacy work.

The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression is the bookseller's voice in the fight against censorship. Founded by the American Booksellers Association in 1990, ABFFE’s mission is to promote and protect the free exchange of ideas, particularly those contained in books, by opposing restrictions on the freedom of speech; issuing statements on significant free expression controversies; participating in legal cases involving First Amendment rights; collaborating with other groups with an interest in free speech; and providing education about the importance of free expression to booksellers, other members of the book industry, politicians, the press and the public.
