Go, Watch: Joyce Brabner Offers Up 200+ Jazz CDs From Harvey Pekar's Collection For Local Family

David Lasky noted here that Joyce Brabner, the late Harvey Pekar's widow, is offering up on eBay some two hundred jazz CDs of the writer's along with some other related items, to benefit a Cleveland Heights family. The auction is here. The bidding is up to $500 as of this writing.

In addition to his comics and related creative writing, Pekar was a music critic, primarily jazz.

A couple of things I like about the video is that Brabner mentions the community support she received when Pekar passed away just over four years ago, and that she admits that maybe the stuff offered might be resold, which somehow struck me as being in the spirit of some of the Pekar stories about his own music collecting.
