Summer Mailbag

FBC2017summer-cover.jpgOur summer print edition is currently en route to subscribers. This year we decided to try a travel theme, apropos to the vacation season. So our readers will be swept away to London to join a walking tour of the city's "Lost Libraries," and they'll get a preview of Chicago's brand new American Writers Museum, and they'll peek inside Winterthur's mysterious Memorial Library in Delaware. Where else will they armchair-travel? Colonial Virginia and Civil War-era Gettysburg; an orchard in Colorado and a country house in Wales. And our "How I Got Started" collector interview focuses on what else? Literary travel guides.

All that in addition to our featured columns from the likes of Nick Basbanes and Joel Silver, auction reports from Ian McKay, a feature story on Griffin & Sabine creator Nick Bantock, and our annual Biblio 360 guide to the bookish clubs, classes, fairs, and events of interest.
