GIVING BY THE BOOK: The First Annual Book Auction to Benefit the Association of Literary Scholars & Critics (ALSC)!

See the message below from ALSC - more holiday gift ideas!
If you share our love for literature and concern to support its flourishing—or if someone on your holiday giving list does—we invite you to browse our First Annual Book Auction and show your support of our work by loading up your personal library (or your cyber-sleigh) with some of the beautiful books on offer there.
The ALSC is a unique non-profit organization that engages literary writers, translators, editors, poets, critics, scholars, educators, and readers from across the globe (and across the ages—we celebrate the literary arts from all languages and eras, classic to modern) and draws them together into one convivial community.
While you may not be a member of ALSC, if you yourself are in sympathy with our mission and you have books of your own you would like to donate, please contact us at 617-358-1990 or today, or visit our auction donor page for more information.
The auction is being held on eBay. Minimum bids are set by the donors themselves. All proceeds will underwrite our programs and publications as unrestricted gifts.
Currently up for bid are first editions of Robinson Jeffers' The Double Axe and Other Poems and Carl Sandburg's The People, Yes. We also have a Speght Chaucer (1598), first editions of Laura Hillenbrand's novel Seabiscuit and Nabokov's Ada, and signed copies of the collected poems of both Allen Ginsberg and Robert Frost. Soon to be added are first editions of Dickens and Tennyson, as well as 5 signed copies of Adam Zagajewski's Without End.
To see full details of the current listings, visit our online benefit auction now!
