Barnes & Noble Bookfairs

Autism Awareness Book Fairs

Sponsored by Barnes & Noble Booksellers and the Alaska Autism Resource Center (AARC)

Please join the Alaska Autism Resource Center as we present two bookfairs this spring.

We are looking for presenters and performers for the Fairbanks Book Fair, and for the children's stage at the Anchorage Book Fair, at this time. Please contact Anne Freitag at 907-334-1301, or by email at afreitag@sesa.org, if you are interested.

Barnes & Noble in Anchorage on Saturday, March 28th, from 11 am to 6 pm.

Join us for a day of great entertainment and fun activities at the Anchorage Barnes & Noble. When you buy something (a book, a cup of coffee, a movie), mention that you support the book fair. Barnes & Noble will donate a percentage of your purchase to the AARC. All funds raised will be used to buy books on autism for libraries around Alaska.

Can’t make it to the store? You can also shop online from March 28 to April 4, using Bookfair ID number 11433612.

If you can make it in, here’s the great things we have for you. Scheduled to appear:

  • UltraLucious: a blues & rock duo, Katie & Cam Nance. Read more.
