The Small Graces September Auction Is On!!!

Announcement from The Foundation for Children’s Books

This month Small Graces: A Painting a Month to Benefit the FCB features another fabulous painting by the talented and generous author/illustrator Grace Lin. This is the 9th painting to be auctioned on eBay as a benefit for our programs in under-served schools.

Here's how it works: Every month a small (5x5 inch), unpublished, original painting will be auctioned on eBay with 100% of the proceeds to support the FCB's author/illustrator visits and residencies in urban schools. Each painting will illustrate a bit of wisdom, a proverb, a "small Grace."

This month's painting (below), painted in gouache on watercolor paper, is on auction beginning today, Monday, September 14 through Friday, September 18. To bid on this painting, click here for the e-bay listing. For those who find original art from children's books beyond their budget, this is a great way to buy affordable art! Please spread the word and bid!

I've been saving my money all year and this is the one I wanted. But, it's already gone above my limit.
It's nice to know that so many kids are going to benefit from her generosity.

Grace is a most generous individual. The Foundation for Children's Books does great work in bringing children's authors and illustrators into under-served schools in the Greater Boston area.
