Auction Donation (BUNDLE!): Jen Malone and Alison Green Myers


Auction Donors and Items: 

Jen Malone writes fun (and funny) books for tweens and teens. Her middle grade titles include At Your Service, the You're Invited series (co-written with Gail Nall), and next year's The Sleepover, all with Simon & Schuster/Aladdin. Her Young Adult titles (with HarperCollins/HarperTeen) include Map to the Stars and the forthcoming Wanderlost. Jen's a former Hollywood movie executive who once spent a year traveling the world solo, met her husband on the highway (literally), and went into labor with her identical twins while on a rock star's tour bus. These days she saves the drama for her books. You can learn more about her and her titles at

Donation Item: One-hour Skype Classroom Visit, Plus Book

What you'll get if you win: Up for auction is a one-hour Skype author visit for your elementary or middle school classroom. Jen is an Author-in-Residence for a Boston-area middle school and for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, who also does frequent school visits and can deliver a program to meet Common Core standards on an assortment of writing/publishing topics. In addition, Jen will send a copy of her MG title At Your Service to the classroom.

Alison Green Myers writes young adult novels, the scarier the better. While my voice pleases the young adult crowd, my eye wanders to picture book design in my studies and instruction. I am a National Writing Fellow and an ARA for Eastern Pennsylvania’s chapter of SCBWI. I also work with the Highlights Foundation to plan and facilitate writers’ workshops at their Northeastern Pennsylvania retreat center and I contribute regularly to the Foundation's blog.

Donation item: Canvas Bag Filled with New Picture Books

What you'll get if you win: Let me hand pick a few new picture books to share with you. I will send you an email asking about some of your favorite things-- raindrops on roses and all that. Then I will customize a bag of books for you to read, enjoy, and hopefully, SHARE. Some titles may be paperback depending on availability.'ll look very smart carrying around those books in a canvas bag rather than stacked under your chin like some other folks I know!
