The New York City Book and Ephemera Fair in New York, NY
There are different authors speaking on different topics from their books, to writing advice, and even how to get published. At the fair, there are publishing companies that come and do advertising and if you are a writer there is no better time to ask questions about the process and what you need in order to get looked at by a publisher. Overall the fair is a great experience and the days that you spend there will be well worth it even if you don't do it for anything but your pleasure and because you love books. The cost at the fair is for the books and the food that you buy as you can get in and look around for nothing it is only if you want to participate at the fair.
