The intention was to create an organization serving the book publishing community and its relationship with the reading public, with an emphasis on promoting reading across all formats. It was envisioned that this entity would be operated as a tax exempt organization and, recently, it has achieved tax exempt status.

Yes, in fact the BIGNY and NYBF Boards have agreed that the New York Book Show will be produced henceforth by NYBF, beginning with the 2021 event.

NYBF has plans to reach out to a broad spectrum of the book publishing world through an email campaign to solicit memberships and donations. At the moment, you can reach out to any of the Board members to receive more info. We hope you do!

We welcome your interest in supporting the work of the New York Book Forum Inc!  Donate now (coming soon)!

The entire NYBFI is comprised of interested volunteers who work to support our mission statement. We have several committees currently: Program, Literacy, Book Show, Education, and Communications. All are welcome to participate. For more details, feel free to reach out to any Board Member to hear more details.
