Every year BEA supports numerous non-profit entities through the donation of goods, services, space at BEA, and monetary contributions.
Our program to highlight our support of great literary causes is BEA Cares. Please join us in supporting the following organizations:
Housing Works is stocked entirely by donations and, as BEA's official charity partner, will be accepting leftover books at the end of the show. Check Housing Works out online at www.housingworks.org/bookstore, and visit them ("the literary salon the city has been missing" according to The New York Times, complete with delicious food and drink) at 126 Crosby Street in SoHo.

The American Booksellers for Free Expression (The ABFE Group at ABA) is the bookseller's voice in the fight for free speech. Its mission is to promote and protect the free exchange of ideas, particularly those contained in books, by opposing restrictions on the freedom of speech; issuing statements on significant free expression controversies; participating in legal cases involving First Amendment rights; collaborating with other groups with an interest in free speech; and providing education about the importance of free expression to booksellers, other members of the book industry, politicians, the press and the public. For more information about ABFFE, visit www.bookweb.org/abfe.
To support ABFE during BEA, donate $1 for each of your autographed books in the Autographing Area.
