Upcoming Book Fair

If you happen to be in the Berkshires this weekend and want to stop in and say "Hi!" I will be peddling my wares in Great Barrington.

18th Annual Antiquarian Book Fair
Saturday July 26 from 10am - 4pm
John Dewey Academy (Searles Castle) on Route 7
Great Barrington, MA

This is one of my favorite book fairs. If you've never been to the Berkshires, I highly recommend the trip. Great Barrington is a cool little town set in the scenic mountains of western Massachusetts. There's a bohemian vibe about the town which is home to many artists, writers and musicians.

The book fair is held on the first floor of Searles Castle, which is at the beginning of the main strip if you are coming fromk the south. It's a marvelous structure set on rolling hills, surrounded by a high stone wall and the back balcony (where a few book dealers will be set up) overlooks the property's lake.

Booksellers from all over the northeast exhibit here, so whether your interest is children's books, military books, modern first editions or even old maps or nautical charts, there will surely be something for you to add to your collection.
