Readers of the e-book bewaremegabytes and pixels do not a book make. And don't even get me started on the eyestrain. But don't worry, there's still hope for you. The 2nd International Book Fair is here to make you a bibliophile once again. To promote the love of the written word, the book fair will feature panel discussions about publishing, journalism and writing, as well as book debates and workshops. In addition, there'll be readings and signings from more than 60 authors, lots of activities for the kids, a great cultural program and a book sale (so that you can work on rebuilding your collection). Get your read on from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library, 1515 Young St. Library events are free to the public.
