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.
