The 2016 Buffalo Small Press Book Fair takes place on Saturday, April 9th, from noon to 6pm AND Sunday, April 10th, from 11am-5pm. The event will be held at the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, Porter Hall, located at 453 Porter Avenue in Buffalo, NY. (See below for map and directions.)

The book fair is a two-day event that brings booksellers, authors, bookmakers, zinesters, small presses, artists, poets, and regional cultural workers together in a venue where they can share ideas and peddle their wares. Tables will be available at the event where people can showcase and sell their work. Poetry readings, performances, discussions, and related lectures are also scheduled to go on throughout the day.

The event is FREE to attend and open to the public!

Vending (selling your wares) does however cost money – a modest fee. Learn more about vending at the event.
