The event will benefit American Booksellers for Free Expression (ABFE) and Every Child a Reader.  National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Gene Luen Yang will serve as honorary chair of the event and will announce the winners of the Children’s and Teen Choice Book Awards, the only national book awards program where the winning titles are selected by young readers. This year’s Silent Art Auction program will also celebrate the 75th anniversary of Random House’s Little Golden Books imprint, which began in 1942.
