Chicago Antiquarian Book Fair @ Plumbers Union Hall

This Friday and Saturday, August 13 and 14, is the Chicago Antiquarian Book Fair. Hunt for what's missing from your collection or bring your own first edition family heirlooms. Over 40 dealers from the United States, Canada and the UK will be displaying portions of their stock and many will be delighted to answer questions and make arrangements to appraise or even purchase collections of books (especially if signed!). Prices seldom fall under $20, but there will be a few bargain book tables as well as author readings and glimpses of rare books seldom seen outside academic libraries. Sponsored by the Midwest Antiquarian Booksellers Association. Plumbers Union Hall, 1340 W. Washington, August 13 from 3-8pm and August 14 from 10am-4pm. Admission is $6.
