The new Flying Star Cafe in Bernalillo will have its Grand Opening Labor Day weekend in Bernalillo August 30, 31 and September 1, 2008. The New Mexico Book Co-op is having a Book Fair/Store to celebrate the New Mexico Wine Festival and the opening of Flying Star Cafe in Bernalillo. You are invited to participate if you have a children’s book or a book on food or cooking (especially on wines). There is no fee to participate (but you may be assessed a small fee for book purchases that use a credit card). The new Flying Star Cafe is located directly across the street from the NM Wine Festival and they anticipate 30,000 people coming, many walking down from the Road Runner station which is a block behind the new Flying Star Cafe. Flying Star Café has given us a store front next to the café (we are not sure which one yet but we will announce that information as soon as we hear from the sponsors). If you participate you will have to bring your books to the store on Friday August 29 (tentatively). And you will need to pick up your books at the end on Monday afternoon. All books must have a price on them or we will not be able to sell them.

If you want to participate and you have a book on food or cooking or a children’s book, email immediately the following info:

Title, Author, Publisher, Price

We will confirm with you by email how to get your books into the store for the weekend.

The next lunch meeting of the NM Book Co-op is Friday, September 26 at 11:30 at HomeTown Buffet. Our presenter will be Anne Hillerman about the Hillerman Mystery Writers Conference. There will not be a meeting in August due to summer vacations.
