Book Fair & Fall Gala
The New York Book Fair is our largest fundraiser and a much-anticipated series of community events that celebrate our love of books. Kicking off the Book Fair season, is the raucous Gala Dinner honoring a leading publisher. At the heart of the Fair is a sale featuring discounts of 50% or more on thousands of brand-new books, held every year the weekend before Thanksgiving. The opening night Book Bash, with its raffle and restaurant tasting, and the Meet-the-Author Dinners are truly festive and memorable evenings. Volunteers make it all happen, including hundreds of neighbors and friends as well as business leaders from publishing and other industries who serve on the Book Fair Committee. Since 1986, the New York Book Fair has raised more than $7 million, and 85 cents of every dollar raised goes directly into Goddard Riverside programs.
