CARLSBAD — The Optimist Club of Carlsbad, “The Achievers,” will host a book and authors’ booth at Grand Street and Carlsbad Boulevard during the upcoming Carlsbad Street Fair on May 1.
Generous local authors are willing to support the club by donating their books and making a personal appearance during the Buy A Book, Help A Child event. That day, all books at the booth, regardless of cover price, will sell for $10 each.
