Book Sales, Fairs, and Conferences

book pages graphic unknown source

Book sales, fairs and conferences are a GREAT way to find out more about specific curricula, explore new options, and expand your library of educational materials.

Meet-up with old (and new) friends, be encouraged and learn so much more with all the available resources.

Plus, used books sales can really help you stretch your educational budget!
Just like seed catalogs are to gardeners, the announcements of book fairs and conferences are a harbinger of spring to homeschoolers.

We’ll try to stay on top of this and post further details as we get updates!
