Book Fairs – Variety July 29-August 1

Variety – the Children’s Charity has announced the dates for their 2010 Book Fair. Starting Thursday July 29, 6.00pm – 10.00pm with a $10 entry fee, the Book Fair will continue on the Friday (8.00am-10.00pm), Saturday (8.00am-5.00pm) and will finish Sunday (9.00am-3.00pm), all three days following Thursday’s opening are free to enter.

Held at the Alexandra Park Function Centre (map) in Auckland this is (along with the annual Red Cross Book Fair at the same venue) one of my favourites. Always a great number and selection of books, they also invest time to classify them in to some 200 categories… a nice touch.

Last years Variety Book Fair raised $120, 000 and this is used to support Variety’s literacy and communication programmes nationwide.
