Writers for Choice


When she realized her local Planned Parenthood was struggling to stay open, author and board member Lauren Groff recruited two-dozen other writers to auction off various literary swag in a fundraising event called The Choice Auction. The group, which included acclaimed writers like Roxane Gay, Emma Straub, and Meg Wolitzer, raised over $21,000 for the cause. The auction closed this Monday, but anyone interested in donating can still do so via The Choice Auction’s website.
