Talking Leaves Book Fairs

For the past four-plus decades, Talking Leaves has had the privilege of serving educators of all kinds in our community. Book Fairs are an excellent way to raise funds while encouraging a love of literature and learning in our school community. People are increasingly making the conscious choice to shop local, utilizing the various resources in their neighborhoods. We feel fortunate to be your local, independent bookstore and we will strive to meet your individual needs.

Each book fair is carefully curated and hand-selected to serve the unique needs of your school. We welcome author and title requests as well as input regarding price point, theme, and curriculum. These will help us to build the best book fair for your students, providing them with a relevant, engaging, and diverse selection.
