ABFFE's Annual Children's Art Auction and Reception


The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE) will host an auction of original children's art from some of the nation's leading illustrators and authors at BookExpo America. The auction is one of the highlights of the children's book industry, bringing together booksellers, publishers, authors, and artists. Funds from the auction will benefit the ABFFE Fund for Free Speech in Children's Books. Author Walter Dean Myers is the honorary chair of this year's event.

Reservations are now being accepted for the auction. The ticketed event will be held in the evening on June 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Javits Convention Center. Ticket prices for the Auction and Reception are $75 for booksellers who are members of the ABC Children's Group and $95 for all others.

Tickets are limited and may sell out prior to BookExpo.  If not, they can be purchased at the event or during a preview of the art that will be held in the South Concourse (south end, Level 2) on the day of the event.  Tickets purchased onsite will be $105 ($85 for booksellers who are ABC members). 

(Tickets to the Auction are also included as part of the fee for the one-day ABC Group Children's Institute at BEA, on Wednesday, June 6, for ABA member booksellers. For more about the Children's Institute and to register please visit

Please email ABFFE Program Assistant Amy Long if you have any questions about tickets, ticket purchasing, or the auction.
