There will be books and crafts of all types. This is a great place to start your holiday buying season.
The book fair is being organized by the New Mexico Book Co-op and is held as part of the 20th anniversary celebrations for ReadWest, which is the premier literacy program in the Albuquerque metro area.
The books and crafts will appeal to both children and adults. Over 100 New Mexico authors & artists will participate in the event beginning at 10 AM with a story time for children conducted by New Mexico children’s book authors.

ReadWest’s 20th Anniversary Celebration will continue into the evening at a banquet spotlighting two authors: Marten Griego and his book, Leaving the House of Tears, and Anne Hillerman and her new book, Tony Hillerman’s Landscape. There will also be music by The Taylors, appetizers, cake, and a live auction which will feature an autographed copy of The Audacity of Hope by President Barack
