The Book Fair is a quarterly-ish-event-series of lectures, music, and art highlighting contributors to The Publik Library. The Publik Library is a digital public archive of things (books, films, videos, art, lectures, places, and people) recommended by working creatives for anyone to look through and learn from. The Book Fair events are centered around conversations with creatives about the inputs and inspirations that have had a significant impact on their lives and careers.
