Kick Bridget's cancer!

Young adult writer and librarian Bridget Zinn has been battling Stage IV colon cancer for two years. Cancer is expensive. Last year, there was an online auction to raise money to help Bridget and her husband Barrett* with their medical expenses. Right now, there's a second auction, “Bridget Kicks Cancer: Season of Love and Hope,” running from November 22nd to December 4th.

*Bridget and Barrett got married in a hospital bed, two days after the proposal. They had three celebrations last summer! I love this picture.

There are tons of items available in the auction, including lots of books! I've donated a signed hardcover of Anna and the French Kiss. You can find it here.

The full auction is here. Winners will be notified on Sunday, December 5th, which means items will arrive with plenty of time for the holidays. If you reach a page that says you need a password, here it is:

There are so many cool things to bid on. Like this chance to get the first signed ARC of Kiersten White's Supernaturally! And Jim Di Bartolo's goooorgeous original cover to Laini Taylor's Lips Touch!

On an unrelated note . . .

Please, please, please, universe: If you love me, you'll let me get photobombed by Thom Yorke the next time I'm at the Louvre.


  1. A signed ANNA?!! Wants!

    I love when the community bands together to support such an amazing cause.

  2. Aw, this reminds me of project book babe. Here's hoping the treatments will work out as well for Bridget as they have for Faith. Hopping over to the auction now! :)

  3. This is really touching. That was really nice of you to donate a signed book of Anna! :)
