J.K. Rowling, Hilary Mantel, Ian McEwan, Philip Pullman, and other British authors will auction off first-edition copies of their books with annotations, illustrations, or commentaries about their stories to benefit the British writers’ organization English PEN.

The auction will take place May 21, with 50 British writers contributing first-edition copies of their works with some sort of additions. Pullman’s novel “Northern Lights,” known as “The Golden Compass” in America, will be sold as well as Helen Fielding’s novel “Bridget Jones’s Diary," Roald Dahl’s children’s book “Matilda,” and Mantel's "Wolf Hall."
