C&B BOOKS, was started in 1995, by Carol Rogers & Brenda Piper.The motivation behind this book business, was the lack of affordable books written by black authors.  We decided to become an asset to our Youth and the African American community in a whole.  We offer our books for less then the major stores, we knew this would provide our readers with a wider variety of reading material. We have, titles for all ages in all catagories, fiction, non-fiction, spiritual, inspirational, educational etc.

Harlem Book Fair 2004

The African Atlantic Genealogical Society presented the 2nd Annual Harlem Book Fair on Long Island, on September 11, 2004, at the Freeport Recreation Center. The fair was an awesome success. It was a beautiful day, and a beautiful assemblage of authors, book sellers, book lovers, entrepreneurs, entertainers, purveyors and purchasers. Prior to the opening of the book fair, a Writers Workshop, was conducted by author and C.U.N.Y. Distinguished Professor of English, Elizabeth Nunez. On the main stage there were three panel discussions, interspersed with presentations by authors and spoken word artists. At the Children's Pavilion, students and authors read and told stories. Dottie the Clown painted faces, and balloon sculptor, Jimmy Leo, entertained in mime. There were people from several states across the country. The person who traveled furthest was Melody, from New South Wales, Australia. Long Island Ducks team-mates Patrick Lennon, Kimero Bartee, and Jamie Brewington were our special guests. NYS Comptroller's Office for Unclaimed Funds was there. Checking their database, 88 people found money. We are grateful to Max Rodriguez, publisher of QBR - Black Book Review and founder of the Harlem Book Fair, for the establishment of the Long Island venue. And special thanks to our financial supporters: Verizon Foundation, Freeport C.D.A. and Astoria Federal Savings.
