Food Book Fair launched in as the first event of its kind: part festival, part conference, set at the intersection of food culture and food systems. Dubbed the "Coachella of writing about eating," "a voracious reader's dream," and "food geek heaven," our programming remains ceaselessly inspired by food media — books, yes, but also magazines, TV, film and radio. Our signature event is an expo starring magazines and makers from Brooklyn to Mexico City to Tokyo. We also produce talks, screenings, dinners, workshops and more.

Reading books about different cultures and lived experiences broadens perspectives and cultivates empathy. To address this challenge, Scholastic Book Fairs offers a selection of mature titles for advanced readers. I Still Love You and other titles that take readers into real-life situations that challenge and inform them. Many students turn to books after seeing movies based on them.
