The San Diego City College International Book Fair is the outgrowth of over ten years of work by the Creative Writing faculty, their students, and friends in the community at large who put out the journal City Works and recently formed San Diego City Works Press.

Location: The Saville Theater

1313 Park Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92101

After several years of attending packed readings for the journal and press, City College President Terry Burgess suggested we think big and start an International Book Fair that we hope will grow to rival the book fairs in Los Angeles and Miami.

We are committed to promoting local writers and booksellers as well as reaching out to prominent national and international authors and artists, particularly our friends and neighbors in Mexico. This year’s fair and future fairs will also showcase the arts and music as well as literature of all sorts.

City College is uniquely situated in the center of San Diego and we hope to serve as a cultural nexus that brings together the various communities of the city and provides a vital site for cultural exchange and growth.

Our primary goal is the promotion of literacy and cultural reciprocity. As we grow in the years to come, we hope that you will continue to mark your calendar each year and come to our fair.

The San Diego City College International Book Fair would not be possible without the generous support of our major sponsors, the San Diego City College Foundation, the American Federation of Teachers Local 1931, and the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture.

We are also deeply indebted to the San Diego Booksellers Association, California Coast Credit Union, Sunbelt Publications, and KSDS Jazz 88.3.  The Book Fair is put on in concert with the San Diego City College World Cultures Program.
