The Complete Fair Calendar


You're at a book fair. You think you've spotted a steal. You whip out your phone to check online. Rats! No hits! Now what? Heigh-yo, Silver!* ABPC rides to the rescue! Auction records culled by real people — and, for when you're really stuck, real people who (cheerfully) answer the phone, too!


There's not much that can compel us to leave the house in the middle of a New York winter. It's cold. It's dark. Did we mention it's cold? But the Metropolis Book Fair is hot hot hot! It returns this January, kicking off Bibliography Week for the second year in a row.

Boston Shadow Show

If it's November, we're in Boston. Two of the very best book fairs in the country on the same weekend, within walking distance of each other! (Get there early for this one, it starts at 8 am.) Plus Boston Commons, Faneuil Hall, the Back Bay, and... Oh. Who're we kidding? Legal Seafood!
