Roundabout book fair is coming to Sanlitun this Saturday. I have heard about this fair from many expats and have been wanting to attend one since I have arrived. I do love my Kindle, but buying and browsing secondhand books is one of my passions. Knowing all the money will go towards a good cause also makes me feel less guilty about buying more books.
All the proceeds of this Saturday’s book fair will be for Zhang Ce, a boy with leukemia. After several rounds of chemo and one bone transplant, the cancer has returned. He needs a second bone transplant.
There will be thousands of secondhand books for sale, paperbacks from RMB 10, hardbacks from RMB 20, and children’s books from RMB 1. This event is for any book loving family living in Beijing that also wants to be apart of an altruistic cause.
Long term volunteers are always needed in the book room of Roundabout. Roundabout needs help selling over a thousand international books. If interested in volunteering please contact Cheney on his email: firstname.lastname@example.org
