Book vendors getting organized, 2021 Detroit Bookfest, Eastern Market, Detroit.

As cities begin to open up, post-Covid, Detroit (again) is showing its commitment to books and the culture of the book. The upcoming Bookfest, again at Eastern Market, Detroit, may set another attendance record, with participating booksellers from Michigan, Illinois, California, and some online sellers from Canada and Europe. This will be a face-to-face event, in real time, with online viewing as well. As you see in our photo, sellers are setting up, unpacking their wares -- printed materials, posters & prints, ephemera, vintage collectibles. Come celebrate in a spirit of recovery, cultural health, ethnic diversity.
