This fall, every Barnes & Noble location in the U.S. will play host to a Make Magazine Mini Maker Faire.

Maker Faires are events where creators, inventors and curious people get together to discuss and learn. They include workshops, lectures and project sessions with guidance and materials provided. Usually, Maker Faires are large scale events, but this fall, Barnes & Noble stores across the country will host mini local Faires that make the event accessible to anyone who lives by one of the big name bookstores. Barnes & Noble is the biggest seller of paper copies of Make Magazine, which makes it uniquely suited to host the event.

Makers are DIY creators who differ slightly from crafters in that there's a more technical, invention-based aspect to making. Make Magazine provides an Internet community for these at-home engineers, allowing them to share everything from lofty concepts to downloadable patterns for 3D printing.
