Book Fairs


Planning a Book Fair? 

Choose to partner with the best!

Since 2006, A Likely Story Bookstore’s book fairs have been known for being different and distinctive.
Each year, we collect and review book fair data to help us customize product selections and improve our range of services.
We believe that careful attention to customer interests contributes to an event that is well attended, appreciated and successful.
A Likely Story has provided book fairs to a variety of organizations from schools (both private and public), hospitals,
business events, and libraries. We also do author events and charitable events and specialty fairs.
A Likely Story Bookstore’s book fairs are available to any organization within 90 minutes of our Sykesville, Maryland location.
