VABA Summer Book Fair!
It's back, and on for August 8th. The Vermont Antiquarian Booksellers Association returns live to Bennington, Vermont on Sunday, August 8th for their 31st Summer Book Fair. It will be held at the Grace Christian School, 104 Kocher Drive, Bennington, from 10am to 4pm.
Booksellers from all around Vermont and from as far away as New Jersey will be gathering together to present for sale their best examples of collectible and rare books, postcards, maps, prints, and ephemera. There will be plenty of handsome and affordable books in addition to more expensive items. Fairgoers will also be able to inspect examples of the beautiful craftsmanship and decorative binding often found in older books.
A summer road trip to Bennington on August 8th will be like visiting at least a dozen different bookshops on the same day. Each bookseller is knowledgeable about his or her specialty, and all love to discuss their favorite subjects and authors. There will also be a book appraisal table open from 1-3pm – fairgoers may bring up to five books for an informal appraisal. For book lovers, there’s no better way to spend a day. Admission to the event is free.
