Don’t miss the FREE 21st Annual African American Children’s Book Fair taking place tomorrow February 9th from 1-3pm in the Gymnasium of the Community College of Philadelphia at 17th & Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia, PA.
The Book Fair started out on a cold frosty day at John Wanamaker Department Store and is now one of the oldest and largest single day events for African American Children’s Books in the country. The success of the program is due to the fact that the Book Fair offers the best and the brightest from the African American Children’s literary community. Parents, caregivers, and educators from the tri-state area are very supportive of the event and all understand that children who read make more responsible decisions about their lifestyles.
The event is free and opened to the public. Author and illustrators will make presentations from their books. Kids will also enjoy games, prizes, promotional give-aways and reading resources will be available. A wide selection of African American books to purchase will be featured at the event. Free.
