It's that time again ... big book-doings around Boston this weekend.
The Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair (ABAA) runs 5-9 p.m. on Friday night, noon-7 p.m. on Saturday and noon-5 p.m. on Sunday, at the Hynes Convention Center. A few highlights have been posted here. Even beyond the impressive exhibitor list there will be a few seminars and tables from some other book-related organizations. I'll be manning the RBMS table on Saturday afternoon, and will be roaming around the fair on Friday night and Sunday.
But that's just the beginning. Over at the Radisson the Boston Books, Print & Ephemera Show will run from 9-4 on Saturday; I'll probably stop in there before the ABAA fair opens that day.
And Skinner's annual Fine Books & Manuscripts Sale kicks off on Sunday at 11 a.m. More on that at some point today or tomorrow, I'll preview some of the interesting lots.
It promises to be a fun, exciting weekend of book and book people (and as of right now, it doesn't even look like it's going to rain or snow).
