BOONSBORO, Md. (AP) — More than 60 pieces of jewelry from the personal collection of bestselling novelist Nora Roberts are being sold at auction.

The silent and online auction Saturday night will benefit the Washington County Free Library and ProLiteracy Worldwide.

Roberts, who lives in Keedysville, tells The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown that literacy is an important cause for her, and she’s happy to be parting way with some jewelry she hasn’t worn in a while.

The event was held at the Inn BoonsBoro, which Roberts owns along with her husband, Bruce Wilder. Those in attendance received signed copies of Roberts’ upcoming novel, “The Next Always,” the first book in a trilogy set in Boonsboro.

Final tallies of the auctions will be posted on Roberts’ official website and Facebook page.
