#Kidlit4Japan Auction Daily Preview: Friday 4/8 (Last New Items!)

When I first had the idea of creating my own auction to benefit the victims of the Japan earthquake, the first person I contacted was Holly Thompson. Holly is a longtime resident of Japan and currently serves as Regional Advisor for SCBWI Tokyo. She was able to give me some idea of what was happening on the ground and where our efforts might make the greatest impact. One of the last items in the auction is a copy of Holly’s novel-in-verse which is set in Japan and will be shipped from Japan to the winning bidder.

The very last item up for bid, and grand finale of the Kidlit4Japan auction, is a very special package of picture books from PaperTigers.org, a website devoted to multicultural books from around the world for children and young adults, with a particular focus on the Pacific Rim and South Asia.

Bidding on today’s items will continue until next Wednesday, and Buy It Now items will close at 4PM on Friday, April 15th. Thanks to everyone for your help over the past three weeks!
