Those looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind gift for bookworms might want to stop by the Grub Street website and check out the author postcards up for auction. Grub Street mailed 29 authors a blank postcard and allowed them free creative reign for their designs. Several One Story authors were among the participants. Along with the enchanting image above, designed by Lauren Groff (issue #112), check out the entries by Steve Almond (issue #31), Ron Carlson (issue #99/100), and Daniel Wallace (issue #49), as well as such other literary luminaries as Amy Hempel, Lorrie Moore, Elizabeth Strout, and James Franco, who signed a highly-publicized book deal earlier this year. Once you’ve made your choice, you can place your bid and cross your fingers. Winners will be announced at the annual A Taste of Grub party on November 6th. All proceeds go to supporting Grub Street’s wonderful writing programs.
