The Santa Fe Public Library’s Main Library (145 Washington Street) will be hosting a Holiday Book Fair on Sunday, November 23, for gift buyers or people who want new books at a great price for their own collection. The Book Fair will feature area publishers: SAR Press, AZRO Press, Bathtub Row Press, ABQ Press, New Mexico Book Association, and LPD Press/Rio Grande Books. Books for sale will be from Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Albuquerque, and other locations. There will be new books for sale at $1 and other steep discounts as well as recent releases. It is a place to go for books for the holidays and benefit the Santa Fe Library at the same time. Many of the books for sale are award-winning books.
In addition to the sale, there will be a special presentation of "How Chile Came to New Mexico" by Albuquerque author Rudolfo Anaya, illustrations by Nick Otero of Los Lunas, and translation by Nasario Garcia of Santa Fe. Books signed by all three will be available. Otero will have the original art from the book for people to see. There will also be a silent auction of signed books to benefit the Friends of the Santa Fe Library.
The event will be held in the Community Room of the Santa Fe Main Library from 1-4 p.m. and admission is free and open to the public.
