The Bacon Free Library Board of Trustees is proud to announce the 2015 BFL Fall fundraiser was a Children’s Illustrator’s Auction! More than eighty (80) of today’s most beloved children’s book illustrator’s donated over 100 pieces of art for this special event. Donations came from all over the US, Canada – even one from England and one from France! We had picture book illustrators, graphic novelists, chapter book illustrators – a recognition of the diversity in the artform.

In addition, we had a children’s picture book signed by Former President Jimmy Carter and a picture book personalized and signed by Former First Lady Laura Bush (did you know they both wrote picture books with their respective children?). AND we  had two limited edition signed poems from literacy superstar Jane Yolen!

We are always celebrating Literacy, Diversity and Artistry.
