May 12, 2019 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

A baker's dozen booksellers, 8 local authors, door prizes, and much more.
Lawrence Ferlinghetti, poet and champion of poetry for all, died in April this year at age 100.
However, his poetry lives on. At the Fair, we had six of his books signed by him, five of which have quick self-portrait sketches on the signature page. See photos of the books on the "Books" page.
We had over 40 entries from elementary and middle school students. Info about winners is on our "contests" page soon.
