Auction Update:

We have sent out invoices for all winning bidders. Please look for an email from - if you won and haven't received an invoice yet, please send us a note at Thank you!

Where will you go today?, with the generous help of Umpqua Bank of San Jose, is hosting an art gallery showcasing many artists and illustrators. Some are well established in the industry, some are just starting out, and some, like us, just draw for fun. Some pieces are a generous donation from an existing body of work, some are sketches of a favorite scene from a book, and all show the endless places we can visit through the power of reading and imagination.

All artwork will be auctioned on eBay, and all proceeds will go to Ethiopia Reads to help fund a library in Gondar, the Solomonic capitol of Ethiopia, and to fund training for a librarian.

Thanks to everyone who came to the gallery opening! The gallery will remain at the San Jose Umpqua Bank location until Monday, August 4th. Auctions will run until 8PM on Sunday, August 3rd 10th (extended due to popular request). (As an option, you can also donate directly through Ethiopia Reads!)

Help us help kids read!
