OE launched the Book Fair in 2015 to provide an open platform for local authors to connect with the community face-to-face. Featured are local authors and their publications, workshops, and more. OE Book Fair participates in donations to local charities by having guests bring gently used books (Pre-K thru Grade 12) to benefit the Hillsborough Education Foundation’s Teaching Tools Store.

“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”
