We'll be at booth #113 (by the West 34th Street/Jefferson Boulevard entrance) with new titles and old favorites, all at special festival pricing. Stop by and say hello, pick up a new book or two, or just come by to peruse beautifully made, artfully entertaining books about Asia and America.

Free Gift With Purchase of "Green Tea Living"

As a special treat to festival-goers, we're offering a free gift with the purchase of the award-winning Stone Bridge Press title Green Tea Living: A Japan-Inspired Guide to Ec o-friendly Habits, Health and Happiness by Toshimi A. Kayaki. We're keeping what exactly this gift is a secret for now, but it will definitely help you practice the "Green Tea Life" of self-sufficiency, simplicity and enjoying life's small luxuries.
