Vermont Summer Book Fair, Sunday Aug. 12
A special note to fellow booklovers:
The Vermont Summer Book Fair is held in a cool, bright, spacious site in the Union Arena, about 2 miles west of Woodstock on Route 4. It starts at 10 a.m. this Sunday. We hope you'll be there to add to your own collections from the 40+ dealers who'll be exhibiting -- including Kingdom Books, of course. We're bringing lots of New England poetry, mostly signed, including work from our current U.S. poet laureate Donald Hall and the newly named successor, Charles Simic. And we're bringing an amazing collection of broadsides!
At the Vermont Summer Book Fair you'll be able to stock up at reasonable prices, and in our booth if you mention this blog, we'll offer you an added 10 percent booklovers' discount.
Dave and I hope to see you there. If you'd like more info on the show and the dealers who'll be exhibiting, with their specialties, see the VABA web site: www.vermontisbookcountry.com
Oh yes, and when the show is done (at 4 p.m.), we'll be racing home to pull together the last-minute details for Monday's Fine Press Appreciation Day (our fourth annual). At the moment, it looks as though four to six of New England's book designer/printers will be on hand for conversation. And we have the work of dozens of small and fine presses for people to browse through and enjoy. The fun starts at 2 p.m. on Monday August 13 and continues to 8 p.m. Nice nibbles on hand, of course!
