Coming Soon - Blogging for a Cure

What happens when a motivated group of authors, illustrators, kidlit bloggers and others get together to support an event to raise money for cancer research? If they're led by Jules and Eisha of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, you get Blogging for a Cure. Beginning on Monday, October 15th, more than 60 bloggers will be highlighting the amazing group of illustrators who have created snowflakes in support of Robert's Snow 2007.
Robert's Snow is an online auction that benefits Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Over 200 children's book illustrators have created art on individual snowflake-shaped wooden templates. Starting in November, these snowflake creations will be auctioned off online, with 100 percent of the proceeds to benefit sarcoma research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. You can view all of the 2007 snowflakes here.

I am honored to be participating in this important event. The Robert's Snow artists I will be highlighting in the coming weeks include:
Tuesday, October 16: Janet Stevens
Monday, October 22: Mark Teague
Sunday, November 18: Teri Sloat
The master list of featured illustrators will be posted each day at Seven Imp. I hope you will visit, tell your friends, and encourage everyone you know to not only view the snowflakes, but bid on them.

Until next week . . .
