The Movable Book Society Silent Auction is a much anticipated fundraiser that provides scholarships for future conferences. At our Kansas City, MO conference in 2018, nearly 300 items were donated and close to $6,500 was raised!

How it Works
You’ll have an opportunity to inspect and silently bid on pop-up books and cards, exhibit catalogs, and paper ephemera during the conference. You’re sure to find treasures to add to your collection – signed or out-of-print movable books, pop-up publications from other countries and more!
All are welcomed to donate items to the silent auction. Do you have doubles of an item in your collection? Or, can you send a signed copy of one of your pop-up or artists’ books? Do you have movable book ephemera that can use a new home?
You don’t need to wait until the conference to send your donation—just make sure every item is accompanied by a Silent Auction Form! We’re collecting and cataloging donations even now. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
