Beth Krommer’s "The House in the Night" is also being auctioned off.
An illustrator of children’s books, McKendry knows well that stories can comfort, inspire, and help children and adults feel safe and hopeful so he decided to honor the role of story time in the lives of families by celebrating and auctioning art by children’s book illustrators. He named the effort We Art Boston. Proceeds from the online auction will benefit the Emergency and Trauma Fund at Boston Children’s Hospital. It funds physical and emotional care to families coping with a disaster.
