Book Fair 2018: Saturday, November 3 at Eastern Quebec Learning Centre (EQLC)
As a new project this year, SNACS Entrepreneurs is taking on the responsibility of organizing the Book Fair that has been run by the Quebec City Women’s Club for the past 80 years. At this event, books donated by the community will be sold at $2 for hardcovers and $1 for softcovers along with a special books section with individually priced books. For the annual Book Fair, the Quebec City Women’s Club would receive on average 10,000 books which approximately 7500 would be sold to members of the Quebec City region.
The objective of this event is to raise funds needed in order to create and support work plateaus for young adults with learning difficulties and special needs.
