We're excited to announce the return of the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair to St. Petersburg's Historic Coliseum, April 1-3!
The book fair is the largest and longest running fair of its kind in the Southeastern United States and features booksellers from all over the country, bringing an array of books, maps, prints, postcards, ephemera, and other paper collectibles. Booksellers will be showcasing a number of special items of significant cultural and historical importance.
It is truly a book lover's paradise, taking place in warm and sunny St. Petersburg, on Florida's west coast.
A complete list of the specialized exhibitors is available at: http://www.FloridaAntiquarianBookFair.com.
St. Petersburg’s Historic Coliseum, 535 Fourth Avenue North, is known as “the finest ballroom in the South.” Opened in 1925, the building was nicknamed the “Palace of Pleasure” in the Roaring Twenties, and has played host to such famed artists as Louis Armstrong, Buddy Rich, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, and Harry James, among others.
FABA Members get free entry into the fair. Please bring a business card to leave at the box office, in exchange for your entry. Please contact Sarah if you'd like posters or cards to advertise the book fair in your community and/or shop.
We'll look forward to visiting with you all in person, after our long quarantine!
With much gratitude,
