The Greater Roxbury Book Fair’s first annual event celebrates the love and passion the Roxbury community has for books and reading. This event will connect books and readers – and authors and artists – in the Greater Roxbury area, and beyond, and inspire new excitement amongst readers.
The Book Fair will have panels, workshops, and local author exhibitors. It will shine a spotlight on this year's Boston Public Schools (BPS) summer reading program. Exhibitors include local authors, artists, and creators, as well as Boston and Massachusetts literary organizations including: 826 Boston, Boston in 100 Words, the Boston Public Schools, Boston Writers of Color, Comics in Color, Lit for Black Kids, the Massachusetts Center for the Book, Mass Poetry, More Than Words, Raising a Reader, Reach Out and Read, Room to Grow, Wondermore, and Writers Without Margins.
Entertainment will include DJ Troy Frost and Berklee College of Music. Join in the excitement, and enjoy free samples from a few Nubian Square restaurants.
The Greater Roxbury Book Fair is a Savor the Square event hosted by The American City Coalition (TACC) in collaboration with the Roxbury branch of the Boston Public Library, Roxbury Main Streets (RMS), and Frugal Bookstore. Springing from the Roxbury community's deep connections to books and reading, the fair showcases the creativity and talent rooted in Greater Roxbury.
