“Whether you’re a music enthusiast, food connoisseur, or mystery lover, and whether you’re an experienced or novice book collector, this fair is guaranteed to have something for everyone,” said Carol Sandberg, Book Fair vice-chair. “We’re excited to bring enthusiasts together once again to not only view items one might see in a museum or special collections library, but also have a chance to browse, touch, and maybe even go home with a rare collectible.”
