Let the blizzard begin!

Today is the first day of the huge, multi-blog effort to publicize the auctioning of beautiful snowflakes painted by more than 200 talented children's book illustrators. All proceeds will benefit the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. You can check out this post I wrote a few weeks ago for more information.

Seven Impossible Things will be posting a schedule every week so you can see which authors are being featured. I'm having some technical difficulties with getting these links to work on a sidebar at my blog, so for now, please link to that schedule and take a look at the blogs that are hosting these illustrators and their snowflakes. There will also be a comprehensive list that will be updated as more and more bloggers add their posts.

Wouldn't a unique, hand-painted snowflake brighten the holidays of someone special you know? And it is for a wonderful cause. The 2007 online auctions for bidding on these gorgeous snowflakes will take place in three separate auctions, open to everyone, from November 19 to 23, November 26-30, and December 3-7. Not every illustrator will be featured in these blog posts - but you will be able to find their snowflakes at the auctions sites as well.

My turn to highlight an author will be coming up soon - stay tuned!
