Itinerant Literate would love to help your school raise money through a custom book fair. We have several options available for fairs of all sizes and needs. As an independent bookseller, we offer some particular perks as a book fair partner.
Looking for stories with characters more reflective of your students, or do you have tons of requests for robots/aliens/ horses/[insert your students favorite topics here]? We can get great titles in any of these categories that still work with your state or federal guidelines!
We can create custom catalog lists for your book fair that will include books from over 100 publishers. From educators wish lists to genre and category-specific lists, submit your ideal fair catalog or event goals and our expert booksellers will create a list to reflect those requests and needs.
For school administrators looking to purchase books to give away to teachers (or students), we can offer a starting discount of 30%. Books purchased for these orders MUST be for give away (classroom copies do not qualify).

Do you need classroom copies for an entire grade level? Or for an entire school? We can fulfill these orders for you. We’ll send a quote for every order we receive, with a breakdown of discount and cost for each title.
