September 2020 at BFDC...

What did we do for our (Covid-enforced) summer vacation, you ask? Why, we completely revamped the BFDC website to make it more useful and user-friendly than ever!

Visit our all-new Calendar View page, our completely re-imagined List View page, and our spruced up Festivals and International Fairs pages, too!

New Scholars

Each year the BSA's NEW SCHOLARS Program invites three scholars in the early stages of their careers to present fifteen-minute talks on their current, unpublished research in the field of bibliography as members of a panel at the annual meeting of the Society. Applications are now being accepted!


Coming off his super-successful Brooklyn Virtual Book Fair, Marvin Getman returns to his monthly First-Tuesday Virtual Fair. Each one of his events seems even more chock-full of fantastic buys than the last — you won't want to miss THIS ONE!


Not to be outdone, the International Online Booksellers Association also plans to revive their ONLINE FAIR. IOBA has long been one of our favorite organizations. Members include local mom and pop stores as well as some of the top dealers in the world. We're super-excited to see their offerings!

We continue to wish health and well-being (mental and physical) to all our readers. In addition to the virtual fairs discussed above, the internet provides many opportunities for staying in touch with the wider book family. Use these links to find BOOKS, browse bookish ORGANIZATIONS, or just explore neat LINKS we've discovered in our travels.

Meanwhile: Help us help the book community stay current — email us at EDITOR@BOOKFAIRS.COM if you hear of changes to the book fair and literary festival schedule. And, be safe out there!
