Suddenly, the season of change is upon us. And still, there is Covid.
And so, we wait.
Thankfully, the ingenious people at IOBA and ABAA and Getman's Virtual (see below) are still plugging away at finding ways to connect the rare and weird and wonderful with the people who appreciate them.
We are so grateful, here at BookFairs.Com, to be able to assist with that effort.
Stay safe, and well.
The sparkling jewel of the International Book Fair calendar, the ABAA's annual November fair in Boston, will be virtual this year. Come meet the 450 booksellers of the ABAA , plus the dozens of ILAB members who regularly attend, in THE marketplace for rare books, maps, documents, prints, posters, ephemera, and more.
Not to be outdone, the International Online Booksellers Association also plans to revive their ONLINE FAIR this fall. IOBA has long been one of our favorite organizations. Members include local mom and pop stores as well as some of the top dealers in the world. We're super-excited to see their offerings!
After taking a break in November to allow the ABAA and IOBA fairs some breathing room, veteran promoter Marvin Getman returns in December with a bibliophilic holiday book fair. Each one of his events seems even more chock-full of fantastic finds than the last — so you definitely won't want to miss THIS ONE!
We continue to wish health and well-being (mental and physical) to all our readers. In addition to the virtual fairs discussed above, the internet provides many opportunities for staying in touch with the wider book family. Use these links to find BOOKS, browse bookish ORGANIZATIONS, or just explore neat LINKS we've discovered in our travels.
Meanwhile: Help us help the book community stay current — email us at EDITOR@BOOKFAIRS.COM if you hear of changes to the book fair and literary festival schedule.
And, please. Be safe out there.
