April at BFDC...

In addition to a few of our off-the-beaten-track favorites (if you've never checked them out, try the Virginia and Florida fairs!), springtime brings the start of the LITERARY FESTIVAL season. So there's bound to be something to tickle your fancy, no matter where you are or what your interest.


You're at a book fair. You think you've spotted a steal. You whip out your phone to check online. Rats! No hits! Now what? Heigh-yo, Silver! ABPC rides to the rescue! Auction records culled by real people — and, for when you're really stuck, real people who (cheerfully) answer the phone, too!


Snowed in? You can still visit the 450+ booksellers of the ABAA at Home. Here you'll find rare books, maps, documents, prints, posters, ephemera, plus a lively blog and lots of other great bookish tidbits!

Boston Book and Ephemera

Can't make it to points south, but going stir-crazy? That's okay, we've got you covered! The Boston West Book and Ephemera Fair returns, and it's a perennial crowd-pleaser.
