MORE ABOUT THE long island BOOK FAIR

Additional Information

The Long Island Book Fair was created by a local poet-illustrator, Michael A. Lee, M.D., in 2019 to help other authors in Long Island to promote their books and to allow the public to get to know the wonderful homegrown writers right here in their neighborhoods.   The Book Fair hopes to encourage  children to read and to expand/expose our youth to the wonderful world of books.    Rather than having kids spending hours watching TV and playing video games, we want our children to be reading , learning and expanding their vocabularies through book reading.  


The LI Book Fair is also supporting a local organization, Authors Against Domestic Abuse, that helps local domestic violence shelters/groups by donating some of the proceeds from the sale of their books to this important cause.  You can also visit our Facebook page under Authors Against Domestic Abuse, to get more information about our cause and sign up for the Book Fair


We hope you join us in a fun filled afternoon filled with inquisitive minds, book readings/signings and lots of fun for the entire family.   Remember it's free to the public so bring all your friends too!
