Step 1: Plan
From poetry readings to scavenger hunts, our booksellers know how to stage events that will draw your supporters. We'll work with you to plan exciting events featuring your school or organization that coincide with your book fair. Based on your individual needs, we can tailor displays during the book fair specifically for you. Book fair dates are typically reserved at least 8 weeks in advance to provide time to plan, communicate, and execute a successful book fair. Contact us to plan a book fair
