Auction Items at the Caregifted Fundraiser Tonight at Hugo House

Posted by on Fri, Oct 5, 2012 at 4:47 PM

As mentioned earlier, there's a literary soiree tonight at Hugo House and the auction will benefit Caregifted, the nonprofit founded by poet Heather McHugh. What's up for auction? All this and more:

· three-on-three basketball game with Sherman Alexie (you and two of your friends and he and two of his friends)
· signed Linda McCartney photograph (a photo by her, not of her)
· a framed portrait of Shakespeare made out of macaroni (extra macaroni for eating included)
· concierged getaway with Heather McHugh in Victoria
· a bunch of signed broadsides
· Whistler condo getaway
· architectural glass panel of a beetle from Rhuby Glass
· dinner at Oddfellows with Christopher Frizzelle and Heather McHugh
· signed copy of Murphy by Samuel Beckett
· books from Heather McHugh's personal treasure trove

There's some pretty great stuff in there. (I'm looking at you, macaroni Shakespeare.) More info about tonight is here.

I wonder if the Beckett was signed by him personally for McHugh.
Perhaps my favorite ever class was on Absurdist Lit. We read Beckett, Ionesco, Stoppard, Pinter, Brook, etc. I think that's why I enjoyed the Rob McKenna posts yesterday. It's a shame Slog felt the need to go back to business as usual; it was a real letdown reading today's posts. Because of the mention of Caregifted, and Beckett, is the only reason I felt to comment now.
