The African Atlantic Genealogical Society, QBR, the Black Book Review will present the third annual Harlem Book Fair on Long Island on Saturday, September 17, 2005, from 12 noon until 6:00 p.m., at the Freeport Recreation Center, 130 East Merrick Road, in Freeport. The book fair was established in Harlem in 1998, by Max Rodriguez, publisher of QBR, and has been held annually in Harlem, New York City. Long Island was established as a venue in 2003. Since then other venues have been established in San Diego CA, Roxbury MA, and Buffalo NY.
