YARMOUTH, Maine — A Maine book publisher is going to bat in the fight against hunger with an online auction featuring signed copies of books by some of Maine’s best-known authors.
Islandport Press’s Online Literary Auction to Fight Hunger kicks off on Monday and runs through Friday. The Yarmouth-based company has set a goal of raising enough money to buy $10,000 worth of food. Proceeds will go to the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger.
More than 20 authors are contributing books for the effort, including Richard Russo, Tess Gerritsen, Cathie Pelletier, Dahlov Ipcar and Colin Woodard. Different books will be auctioned on different days during the week.
People can participate in the auction through the www.islandportpress.com/fighthunger website.
