Goddard Riverside Book Fair returns in person


After going virtual for its 2020 event, the annual Goddard Riverside Book Fair will return in person this month.

Now in its 35th year, the book fair will be held at Goddard Riverside at 593 Columbus Avenue (at 88th Street) on Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

As always, thousands of brand new books donated by publishers will be donated to the book fair at 50% off, with proceeds going to support the programs of Goddard Riverside.

Entrance to the Book Fair is free and the following COVID-19 security protocols will be in place:

  • All participants must prove that they have been vaccinated or have a negative PCR test within 72 hours.
  • Goddard will implement a one-way flow through the building.
  • Masks will be mandatory at all times.

There will also be a “Book Bash” on the evening of Friday, November 19 – a cocktail where attendees can check out the available books. You can find more information on this at goddard.org/bookbash2021.

Sharing is loving!
