Mid-Atlantic Mini Book Fair

Yes, it may only be Monday, but surely you are making bookish plans for next weekend, right? If you're anywhere in the NY/NJ/DE/MD/PA area, the mid-Atlantic chapter of the ABAA is hosting a mini book fair and sale at the Bookshop in Old New Castle in New Castle, Delaware.
    Thirteen ABAA booksellers have signed on to showcase their books, including Antipodean Books, Between the Covers Rare Books, Black Swan Books, Brian Cassidy Bookseller, Certain Books, Hammer Mountain Book Hall, The Kelmscott Bookshop, Bruce McKittrick Rare Books, Oak Knoll Books, the Old Bookshop of Bordentown, Willis Monie Books, Philadelphia Rare Books & Manuscripts, and Wellread Books.
    And if that weren't enough, Lilly Library curator (and FB&C columnist) Joel Silver will be there to sign copies of the new trade edition of his Dr. Rosenbach and Mr. Lilly: Book Collecting in a Golden Age, just published by Oak Knoll.
    The fair runs from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday the 17th and is sure to be a fantastic time.
