Vancouver Antiquarian Book Fair returns in October
Good news from our neck of the woods, the Vancouver Antiquarian Book Fair is set for a comeback in October. This Fair hasn’t been staged since the early 1990s even though British Columbia is a stronghold for bibliophiles and rare book collectors.
The event is presented by the Alcuin Society, who work tirelessly to promote the fine book culture at a multitude of levels, with Dr Yosef Wosk as a patron. AbeBooks.com is thrilled to be a sponsor. The Fair will be held in the downtown branch (350 West Georgia St) of the Vancouver Public Library on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th October. We’re looking forward to seeing some of this area’s best rare booksellers and meeting many of our local customers in the flesh.
The Fair organisers expect booksellers from across Canada and the Pacific North West to be exhibiting at the event.
