Going Back to Cali

So the 43rd California International Antiquarian Book Fair is here! (Or actually, there, since I'm still in NY). For those of you attending, be sure to check out the special exhibit, "From Author to Oscar," which focuses on Oscar-winning films that were adapted from books. Rare copies of the books will be on display, along with photos, posters, and related ephemera from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Margaret Herrick Library.

To coincide with the exhibit, rare book experts Kevin Johnson [read a Fine Books First Personal Singular with Kevin] and Jim Pepper and Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan will hold a panel discussion on the role of great books in Oscar-winning movies, as well as the impact of Academy Awards on the book collecting world. That's tomorrow--Saturday--at 3 p.m.

Have fun!
