The Book Catapult

Grub Street

Grub Street, a Boston-area non-profit creative writing center, has an annual “From the Desk Of” postcard auction, where they mail 30 authors blank 5×7 postcards and give them free reign to do whatever they want to them. The resulting artwork is offered up for auction on their site – grubstreet.org. This year’s amazing crop includes postcards by Alice Hoffman (her postcard is seen here), Lorrie Moore, Susan Orlean, Daniel Wallace, Stewart O’Nan, Amy Hempel, Matthew Pearl, Elizabeth Strout, and Mr. Ron Carlson. Check it out – the bidding prices are fairly modest, so don’t be shy!
