Parnassus Books says
If you’re a bookseller whose life has been turned upside down by illness, natural disaster, or other sudden misfortune, the folks who write the books you sell have your back.

That’s what Parnassus manager of books for young readers, Stephanie Appell, found out when she was diagnosed in April of this year at age 29 with breast cancer and faced months of chemo, surgery, recovery — and so many medical bills. Over 100 writers, illustrators, and artists decorated piggy banks to raise money for Appell's medical expenses.

We hope you'll join us at a party to view the piggy banks and kick off the auction at Parnassus Books. A $10 donation is requested at the door. Want to bid on a pig? Bidding opens online at 6:30pm on Sunday, September 25, and runs until 8pm on Friday, September 30.

To make an even greater impact, Parnassus will donate a portion of the funds raised from the piggy banks to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc), a nonprofit dedicated to helping booksellers in need. View all of the pigs, place your bids, or donate to the cause at www.biddingowl.com/bankonbooksellers.
