Rare Books LA – Pasadena will welcome booksellers and bibliophiles from around the world to share their love of books, fine prints, maps, ephemera, and more on February 3 and February 4, 2024 at the Pasadena Convention Center.

“This book fair is a 'can’t miss' whether you’re searching for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the book lover in your life or just want to spend a fun and educational day with a loved one,” said Rare Books LA Director Jodi Tolan. In addition to rare books, visitors can browse a range of other items from historic maps and original artwork to artists' books and punk zines. “There is something for everyone all under one roof,” said Tolan.

Rare Books LA is also hosting a series of bookish talks at the event, all included with the price of admission. 

Tickets range from $15 to $25. A special 'Booklovers' package for $40 includes a pair of weekend passes to the fair, a limited edition book bag, and a red rose on entry for that special someone. A weekender pass to the book fair is $25 and includes a limited edition book bag and entry to the fair both days. 

Rare Books LA – Pasadena runs February 3, 10am-6pm, and February 4, 11am-4pm, at the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 East Green Street, Pasadena, California.
