The 2017 Book Fair will include book signings, talks by each featured writer, cultural vendors, food trucks, a writer’s workshop session, a Kids Zone, a community parade, poetry readings, writer’s circles, and art displays. SBBF will feature more than fifty authors of African descent, showcasing and highlighting a diverse spectrum of authors and literature, from contemporary and historical fiction to anthologies, poetry, academic books; children’s stories and books, non-fiction to biographies, self-help, and inspirational, and religious.
