KidLit Cares: Skype Author Visit with Laurie Halse Anderson

Auction #10: Skype Author Visit with Laurie Halse Anderson

Welcome to KidLit Cares, an online talent auction to benefit the Red Cross relief effort to help communities recover from Superstorm Sandy. Agents, editors, authors, and illustrators have donated various services to be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with donations being made directly to the Red Cross disaster relief fund. You can read more about KidLit Cares here. Now, on to the auction!

Laurie Halse Anderson, the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of YA favorites like Speak, Twisted, and Wintergirls as well as MG historical adventures Chains and Forged is offering a 30-minute Skype chat with your library, classroom, or book club.  Date & time will be mutually agreed upon by the winner and Laurie after the auction ends.

Opening Bid: $20

Auction Ends: Friday, November 9, 2012 at 10pm EST. (Any bids submitted in comments after that time will be void.)

If you’d like to bid on this auction, check the current high bid and place a higher bid by leaving your name and bid amount in the comments, along with some way to contact you (email, FB or Twitter…I’m not fussy.) Winners will be notified when the auction ends and should be prepared to make an online donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund in the amount of the high bid at that time.  After you’ve made your donation, you’ll forward your receipt to me, and I’ll put you in touch with the person who donated the service you won so that the two of you can work out the details about how and when.   All services will be provided at the convenience of both the person making the donation and the auction winner, but this should happen within three months of the auction’s end unless something else is agreed upon by both parties.

Good luck and thanks for your help!
