Whether you are looking for a good book to read while stretched out on the beach, or – for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere – searching for something to curl up with in bed on a frosty winter’s night, there will be something for you in the SAG Foundation’s Celebrity Autographed Book Auction.
The Screen Actors Guild Foundation is raising money for it’s literacy programs by auctioning off books signed by your favorite stars. Going under the hammer are titles such as The Olsen Twins' Influence, Michael J. Fox's Always Looking Up, Heidi Klum's Body of Knowledge, Julianne Moore's Freckleface Strawberry and the Dodgeball Bully, Tom Colicchio's Craft of Cooking, William Shatner's Quest For Tomorrow, Alison Sweeney's All The Days Of My Life, Kirk Douglas' Let’s Face It, Jenny McCarthy's Healing and Preventing Autism, Larry King's My Remarkable Journey, Tori Spelling's Mommywood, Sean Astin's There and Back Again, John Lithgow’s The Poet’s Corner and many more.
Proceeds from the auction benefit the Screen Actors Guild Foundation’s literacy effort, which began in 1992 and now includes such programs as:
- BookPALS, a volunteer program comprised of performing artists who read aloud to students in schools, hospitals and libraries.
- We The Children, which teaches children the value of books and the importance of their lives by giving them the opportunity to write and illustrate their family history.
- Storyline Online, an online interactive website which brings the excitement of books into the classroom and home.
The auction runs until July 28 and can be accessed here.
