Signed work by Susan Sontag, Jonathan Franzen,Jonathan Safran Foer, Joyce Carol Oates, & more

In March 2003, Political Action Committee- Downtown for Democracy brought together fourteen of the nation's most respected writers in a marathon reading. More than 2000 people flocked to Cooper Union's historic Great Hall for a celebratory night of literature and politics. Now that evening has been immortalized in "Sometimes Small Statements Make a Big Difference," a collector's portfolio of the pieces read that evening.

The portfolio features original fiction by Paul Auster, Michael Cunningham, Jennifer Egan, Jonathan Franzen, Gary Indiana, Jhumpa Lahiri, Susan Sontag, and Colson Whitehead, as well an introduction by Jonathan Safran Foer (the evening's curator), a poem by Joyce Carol Oates, and a scene from a new play by Wendy Wasserstein. Sometimes Small Statements Make a Big Difference comes in an unbound boxed edition. Each of the twelve pieces is hand-signed by its author, printed on heavy-stock, archival, 16” by 12” paper, and suitable for framing. This piece is part of a limited collectors edition.

This is a wonderful non-profit that promotes democratic values and mobilizes young voters throughout the country. If you're interested in getting limited edition, NEW work signed by these fantastic authors please email me at maureen@downtownfordemocracy.org This collection is one of the many creative ways we raise money for our cause.
