#kidlitcares: the hashtag behind the initiative: dozens of people and organizations are auctioning off publishing and author-related items and services to support Sandy victims.  The Kidlitcares auction is the brainchild of US kids’ author Kate Messner. The second round of the auction will be hosted on Toronto author Joanne Levy’s website http://joannelevy.com/2012/11/02/kidlit-cares/ beginning NOVEMBER 12. Auction items include critiques from top int’l editors and agents, signed copies of books by popular authors, and school visits from famous and not so famous children’s authors. For example, author Helaine Becker will be donating a school Skype visit and author/editor Bev Rosenbaum is offering a manuscript critique, so please bid generously through Joanne’s website.
