"Book Fair NYC," Photo 0841, November 1937- scanned Black and white photograph showing several women looking at a table display of various guidebooks. A note attached to the photograph reads "Do you have a volume on American cookery?" 'May I look at the guide to Washington?' 'How many writers are employed on a project?' 'Do you publish books yourselves?' 'How can I order a copy of international Veternary" (?) - Questions like these were asked at the book of the Federal Writers' Project, New York Times National Book Fair, Where an exhibit of the American Guide Series was shown in November. Questioners were referred to the recently complied project catalog listing almost one hundred of the books already in print and announcing future publication of two hundred more. The Writers' project was the only 'author' having a booth at this publishers' event, the booth having been sponsored by the Guilds' (?) Committee for Federal Writers' Publications, Inc., the non profit organization consisting of well known critics and writers which sponsored the popular Almanac for New Yorkers, 1936, brought out by Modern Age Books, Inc. this month."
