The crinkle of the order form, the cafeteria tables piled high with books, the anticipation of coming back from recess with a brand-new story to dive into: nothing was better than book fair day at school.

We miss it, too. That’s why we’re teaming up with our friends at East City Bookshop for a good old fashioned book fair, highlighting programs from the Folger’s reopening season. Shop a curated book selection inspired by Folger Theatre, Poetry, and Book Club programs while learning more about what we have planned.

Teri Cross Davis (Folger Poetry Manager) will be reading poems throughout the evening from our upcoming poetry season and Folger staff will be on hand to answer questions about upcoming events. Enjoy sips and snacks as you browse, with the opportunity to enter drawings for Folger tickets, swag, and more.

After you select your books, take your receipt down the road to Mr. Henry’s to enjoy 10% off your pre-tax bill!*


*Discount only valid Friday, October 6, 2023 with a receipt from East City Bookshop dated October 6, 2023
