Welcome to the 2016 Harlem Book Fair.

As you know, the Harlem Book Fair is a year-round enterprise. QBR The Black Book Review (www.QBR.com) is where you promote your work throughout the year. The HBF is where you find new readers and readers find you. They work, hand-in-hand, to place your book in readers hands. We are now accepting suggestions for presenting authors and panelist, readers, workshops and 2016 Wheatley Book Award nominations. Please forward your author suggestions to mrod@qbr.com or click here for a Wheatley Book Award nomination form.

In 2015, HBF, in partnership with the NAACP Kansas City, Kansas and El Centro, a community-based social service organization, expanded its reach into Kansas City, Kansas. We continued to build audiences in White Plains, NY through our Westchester Children's Book Festival in partnership with the White Plains Public Library, the City of White Plains, and the White Plains Youth Bureau. In February, the Harlem Book Fair will lauch a national reading/book awareness initiative that will lead, powerfully, into the 2016 Harlem Book Fair. You can be part of that initiative that will celebrate the power of your work in books.

As the number of books we, as a writing community, bring to press and as our number of readers of expands, we, the HBF organizers, will always manage our growth to ensure a positive and memorable book fair experience. Remember the morning rain last year! It wreaked havoc on our morning set up time! And still, HBF 2015 proved itself one of our most successful in recent years. 2016 will be more successful. We have re-designed the layout of the festival to give exhibitors the choice of high-level visibility or low-level entry cost - truly something for everyone. 

Please click on this link to access the 2016 Harlem Book Fair Exhibitor Application. Read it carefully and call us if you have any questions. This is the start of a new growth of the HBF and we want you to come and tell us your stories.

Always proud of what you do...Thank you for trusting QBR and the Harlem Book Fair to deliver your work to our readers. See you in July!
