22nd Annual Twin Cities Antiquarian & Rare Book Fair
June 29, 2012 – June 30, 2012
1621 Randall Avenue, Progress Building, MN State Fairgrounds
Falcon Heights, MN
Description: Rare books, old books, books for collectors and books for readers. Held in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society, this is the summer opener for the book crowd and anyone who likes to see what tumbled out of the attic and turned into gold.
Come to see the $50,000 copy of The Great Gatsby and stay to pick up a stack of beach reading. On Saturday, June 30, bring up to 3 of your books for FREE appraisals by rare book dealers. Stay for the 3 booktalk sessions:
* Patrick Coleman will talk about his blog, The 150 Best MN Books, and entertain your suggestions for additional titles.
* Moira Harris, internationally known for her expertise in ephemera and will even explain what it is in her talk, "Small Bits: Ephemera, Books and History."
* William Stevens will address the economics of book collecting, if there's money to be made and how to get some of it.
