The 27th Annual Charles C. Yancey Book Fair will be kicking off Saturday July 6.
Registration closes July 5.
Held each year at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Roxbury, the free event helps connect young readers in Boston to the books and resources they need to succeed.
Launched in 1987 by the Mattapan City Councilor, nearly 500,000 books have been distributed to area students and libraries through the fair, according to Yancey’s office.
In addition to the books, Saturday’s activities will include music, arts and crafts, food, and resource tables.
The event will run from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. To register, click here.
