Literary Auction!

Last year I was overwhelmed by the task of organizing our annual gala PTA fundraiser at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock.

This year, I have a wonderful chairman who has done all of the planning, leg-work and logistics.  However, I've been there to offer whatever assistance I can to make her job easier.

Once again, though, I was able to collect a few copies of signed books for our auction.  Although not as plentiful as last year, here are our offerings:

Planting Dandelions by Kyran Pittman (Kyran is one of our PTA moms and we are thrilled to have her book in our auction!)
Planting Dandelions by Kyran Pittman: Book Cover

Carry the Rock by Jay Jennings: Book Cover

The Ugly Truth (Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series #5) by Jeff Kinney: Book Cover

And finally -- my JACKPOT!

The title and signature speak for themselves! (And my secret -- I was able to get TWO signed -- so I can keep one!!)

That is so cool you got an autographed True Grit! I must say that honestly, I didn't realize he was still alive (yikes!) but that is super-cool.
