Peruse vintage, rare and out-of-print books in an equally vintage location with the sixth annual book fair at Old Stone House in Park Slope.
The one-day event will include Brooklyn booksellers like Freebird Books, Enchanted Books, Honey & Wax Booksellers, Left Bank Books and Lizzyoung Bookseller selling some gift-worthy volumes in the historic stone house.
In addition to the opportunity to snap up some literary gifts, there will be activities for budding young authors. Writer Rachel Barclay and Writopia Lab, a non-profit that provides creative writing workshops for ages 6 to 18, will be providing some writing-themed fun — children will be able to craft their own short stories and engage in some literary games. While drop-in participation anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. is welcome, if you want to reserve a spot for your young writer, click here.
If you were hoping to gift a signed copy of a New York book this season, make sure to be at the holiday book fair at 12:30 p.m. when author Jeremiah Moss will be signing copies of his recent book ‘Vanishing New York: How a Great City Lost Its Soul.’
The book fair takes place on Saturday, December 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Old Stone House at 336 3rd Street in Park Slope. For more information on the event, click here.
