The New York Post throws us a bone

from the Page Six gossip column:

ANIMAL LOVER
IN-the-doghouse memoirist James Frey is throwing a bone to the Louisiana ASPCA (sic) by donating a set of signed copies of "A Million Little Pieces" at a silent charity auction at B Bar Monday night, to raise money for the shelter. Along with Frey, "Orchid Thief" author Susan Orleans is donating her homemade dog biscuits. The auction, including "dog art," is also a book party for Ken Foster's memoir, "The Dogs Who Found Me," chronicling Foster's penchant for adopting strays. Special drinks include a "Katrina" - no disrespect intended.

We'll also be serving a Pacemaker martini.

Some of the other items up for grabs:
Two portraits by famed dog photographer Cami Johnson.
Signed books from James Frey, Cindy Adams, Jonathan Lethem (and his dog Maisie), Amy Hempel, Chuck Barris and others.
A signed ARC of Elizabeth Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" stuffed with a page from her India travel diary and other notes.
From The Bark Magazine: A tote bag packed with a copy of "Dog is My Copilot," copies of The Bark, a free subscription and The Bark label wine!
A basket of dog and people treats and books from NY POST columnist Julia Szabo.
An online course and AvantGuild membership from Mediabistro.com.
A signed copy of Susan Orlean's "Throw Me A Bone" with a bag of dog biscuits baked by the author.
A signed CD from Aimee Mann.
A collection of children's books from Harcourt.
A collection of dog books from Lyons Press.
A variety of paintings of dogs donated by artists from around the country.
