The Buffalo Small Press Book Fair

In Buffalo, The Buffalo Small Press Book Fair is big news. This year over 110 vendors and over 2500 participants will gather at the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum (Porter Hall) to pay tribute to “booksellers, authors, bookmakers, zinesters, small presses, artists, poets, and other cultural workers.” In a city that knows how to appreciate ‘all walks of artists’, we have an incredible pool of talented people who rely on the small press way of life both locally and nationally. 
On Saturday, March 24th one big building will come alive with a treasure trove of dedicated book enthusiasts who will showcase their artistic talents by showing off their works. This year, to add an even heightened level of interest and curiosity to the affair, the Western New York Book Arts Collaborative is teaming up with the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair to add another dimension to the event. And it doesn’t stop there. As part of the collaborative showing, Just Buffalo Literary Center and the New York State Council on the Arts have both stepped up in order to make this year’s event a real show stopper. 
Here’s the info:
The 2012 event will take place on Saturday, March 24th from noon to 6pm at the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum from noon to 6pm. This event is FREE and open to the public! Get directions to the event.
