KEEP THE BOOKMOBILE ROLLING: (CURRENT HIGH BID is $250.) The Patrick County Public Library is raising money to replace the bookmobile. Deana and I are auctioning off the following items—as one lot—to help with the effort: 1) a signed, immaculate first edition of the late Pat Conroy’s MY READING LIFE (estimated value $100); 2) a signed Dale Earnhardt, Sr. hat (estimated value $125); 3) a signed ZZ Top poster (estimated value $40); 4) a signed copy of Darrell Waltrip’s book DW: A LIFETIME GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES (estimated value $45); 5) a framed, original, and absolutely beautiful Greg Arens painting (estimated value $225); 6) signed copies of my four books (value $75); 7) a really cool 1:24 scale collectible Wood Brothers 21 HOF car signed by the four original Wood Brothers (two of whom are HOF), Len Wood, Eddie Wood and Trevor Bayne (estimated value $300); and 8) a galley of THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK with an authenticating note from the publisher FS&G (estimated value: unknown. This is a unique and very valuable item—the book was made into an Academy Award winning film.). Please enter a bid below, and again, it’s one bid for everything—we can’t separate the items. Once the winner donates the money directly to the library, we’ll deliver the eight items to you, and then Deana and I will match the winning bid up to $1500 with our own donation. The auction is open until next Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 9:00 PM EST. Happy bidding and thanks for helping.
