Book fair day at school was THE BEST when I was a kid. You could walk away with a stack of books and maybe even a cool toy or two - in the middle of the school day, no less!

Well, if you, like me have been missing book fairs as an adult - one is coming up for us, and it's spooky themed!

In June Broad Leaf Brewery and Spirits partnered with Schuler Books for their first ever adult book fair. The event featured SciFi and Fantasy books, merchandise, and specialty drinks. They're doing it again!

Schuler's says,

We’re back with another Adult Book Fair at Broad Leaf Brewery; spooky scary edition! We’ll be there with horror, thriller, and witchy reads of all kinds and loads of fun bookish merch. We can’t wait to see what specialty drinks Broadleaf comes up with! We bet they'll be spooky. And scary!

The Spooky Scary Adult Book Fair is Sunday October 29, starting at noon, at Broad Leaf Brewery at 2885 Lake Eastbrook Blvd SE in Kentwood.
