Stock up on your fall, winter, spring and summer reading this month. The annual 6-day AAUW (American Association of University Women) BOOKFAIR is set for Monday, Sept. 25 through Sunday, Oct. 1.
The BOOKFAIR draws book lovers from throughout the Atlanta metro area as well as nearby states. More than 75,000 gently-used, donated books will be available at bargain prices.
It’ll be held at Perimeter Mall, I-285 and Ashford-Dunwoody Rd., on the lower level of the Dillard’s wing. Hours are: Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
If you’re a dedicated bibliophile or collector, consider attending Preview Night, Monday, Sept. 25, 6-9 p.m. There is an admission fee of $10 for preview night only.
The AAUW, founded in 1881, is the oldest and largest organization working for the advancement of women. The 58th annual BOOKFAIR is sponsored by the three local branches in Atlanta, Cobb County and North Fulton.
During its first 57 years, the BOOKFAIR has brought more than $1.5 million, benefitting: the AAUW Fund, used to advance educational and professional opportunities for women; the Atlanta Metropolitan Community, through scholarships, grants and community programs; and international recipients. For the past two years, AAUW has been providing aid to the Kopila Valley Project in Surhet, Nepal, which assists women and children there.
