Every year the publishing community pulls together to donate to and host the Goddard Riverside Community Center Book Sale. In addition to saving 50% or more on literally 1000s of recently published books, calendars and novelty items your dollars benefit the center. Since the Goddard opened it's doors in 1959 it has strived to serve the lower income and needier New York community and through 22 current programs continues to work to meet the basic needs of many New Yorkers - housing, food, eduction. This weekend long event is also a publishing celebration that includes a Book Bash and Meet the Author's Dinners. The center gladly accepts volunteers and every $0.85 spent is directly donated to the program.
This year's event takes place on
Saturday, November 22, from 10AM - 6PM
Sunday, November 23, from 11AM - 5PM.
