Book Fair for a Cause

I found out about a cool book fair which is happening this Sunday, September 28 . Here's the blurb from the NY Times:

Not only does Housing Works 4th Annual Open Air Book Fair have more than 10,000 books, records CDs and DVDs priced at $1 each, there will also be a $20 per bag “all you can stuff” sale of clothing from the thrift shops. Plus food from local restaurants like Noho Star and Puck Fair and beer from Sixpoint Craft Ales! Pedestrians only on Sunday; worthwhile charity any day of the week.

Housing Works, located in Soho (South of Houston Street) has a Used Book Cafe which, according to their website, has 45,000 used, new, and rare books and records. Wow!

AND the best part is that 100% of profits go to Housing Works, a non-profit that provides services for the homeless in NYC living with HIV and AIDS.
I haven't been there before so I'll let you know how it goes. And if you are in the area, check it out!
***NOTE: It's dumping buckets of rain today in NYC and is supposed to ALL weekend. So I hope it's not outdoors and/or canceled!!!!
