As the flier below shows, I’ll be at the Basin Book Fair in Midland, Texas on April 9, 2022. I scanned some websites about the value of book fairs in general and here’s what I discovered:
- Book fairs in our nation put millions of books into the hands of children and also helps schools obtain resources needed to promote reading and literacy.
- Book fairs are happy events for educators, parents, and children. Memories are stimulated and new reading and technological discoveries are made.
- Book fairs provide an opportunity to meet authors.
- We are sick of virtual events, and this event is a chance to have a bookish experience in real life.
I hope you will consider visiting this event! It looks like it will be great fun!
