Washington Antiquarian Book Fair is Here

Dive into a treasure trove of rare books, manuscripts, autographs, maps, drawings and other fine ephemera (think authentic White House letters from Jackie Kennedy or 1st editions of Sylvia Plath poetry) at the 42nd annual Washington Antiquarian Book Fair. Featuring art, science, medicine, geography, travel, sports, music, classics, children’s books and more, WABF offers something for every interest and every price point.
 
Plus with the purchase of a ticket: check out an exciting night of fast-paced literary games (hosted by Capitol Hill’s own Labryinth Games & Puzzles) on Friday, and on Saturday, get your own personalized, off-the-cuff poem, typed on a vintage machine by Typewriter Rodeo.
 
The Fair is being held at The Sphinx Club (1315 K Street NW, WDC, 20005).
Fair hours are: 4-8pm, Friday April 28; 10-4pm, Saturday April 29
 
For the last 41 years the WABF was held in Rosslyn, Virginia but in 2017 we’ve moved to, and plan to stay in, Washington DC.v
