Lovers of books, poetry, and black culture- mark your calendars! The 4th Annual Sacramento Black Book Fair (SBBF) will be held on June 2nd and 3rd at The Historic Center of Oak Park at 35th Street & Broadway. The Sacramento Black Book Fair will celebrate another year of bringing black authors together introducing the 2017 theme “Black Books Matter: The Truth of Our Many Selves.” Unlike many of the previous book fairs, this year will include book signings, talks by the featured writers, cultural awareness vendors. Families, schools, and churches are recommended to attend for the array of activities featured such as a Kids Zone, writer’s workshops, food trucks, community parades, poetry readings and art galleries.

“What’s different about this book fair is that people will actually get to talk with the author’s themselves,” says Faye Wilson Kennedy, SBBF Coordinator.”

-“Many people don’t understand the depth of black authors’! So getting to meet them personally to discuss literature will create an understanding and appreciation of their work.”

The Sacramento Black Book Fair plans on spotlighting over fifty authors of African descent which will promote a unique group of authors and literature. The author’s stories and books will feature topics on religion, contemporary and historical fiction, poetry, children’s stories, inspirational, non –fiction, fiction, and biographies.
