Book Fair 2021

Call for Volunteers to Help Run the Fair! We need volunteers to register participants, serve as room moderators for the talks and panel discussions, provide relief to our exhibitors (refreshments, bathroom breaks), and distribute flyers to local businesses. Each volunteer will receive a ticket for the door prize drawings. Contact Steve Gordy, Book Fair Coordinator, by e-mail at authorsteveginaiken@gmail.com, or by phone at 803-645-0699.

The Center for Lifelong Learning will host a Book Fair on November 13, from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM, in the Business and Education (B&E) Building on campus. The Fair is open to the public. Refreshments will be available.

The Book Fair 2021 will feature 45 local and regional authors whose contributions to our program will make this a day jam-packed with opportunities to learn and to find those special gifts for the readers in your life.

Theme: Books Can Build a Bridge

Books are the raw material for building bridges—from the past through the present and into the future. We're fortunate that we have many gifted writers in our area whose nonfiction works enlighten our world. We also have fine writers whose fiction takes us to places we've never been and which broaden our understanding of life.

Door Prizes! Entry to the Fair is free. We do request a voluntary contribution of $5.00, which will go to the Center's scholarship fund. Contributors will receive a ticket for the door prize drawings.
