I recently had the opportunity to interview Marty Sklar regarding his memoir and career, click here to listen to and read the highlights of that interview.  On Friday, August 9th, Marty will be appearing at the 2013 D23 Expo with a presentation and book signing.  If you can not make it to the D23 Expo, or don’t want to wait in line for the book signing, then this is just the opportunity for you.  Follow this link (or use the widget below) to bid on Marty’s book.  You can place bids until Thursday, August 15, 2013, and 100% of the proceeds will go to Give Kids The World.  Those funds will help to provide a week-long cost free vacation for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
