The Complete Fair Calendar

Albany Fair

Everything old is new again — books, yes, of course, but also venues! The Albany Book Fair's 40th year sees a return to its original home: The elegant Albany Institute of History & Art. (And don't forget to visit the Egg!)

If the Internet has turned the globe into a village, then that makes IOBA the village bookshop. Rummage through its back rooms, search through its secret cupboards, pick through the piles stacked under the stairs... And don't forget to pet the (virtual) shop cat while you're there!

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!

Meet the 450 booksellers of the ABAA in a marketplace for rare books, maps, documents, prints, posters, ephemera, and more, at Discover insightful information from the top people in the business on their newly revamped blog and web site!
