We were delighted to participate in the OE Book Fair at Oxford Exchange in Tampa on Sunday, May 7, 2017. We had our own little room for displaying a sampling of what Lighthouse Books, ABAA is all about. We were pleased to introduce the store to some visitors who where unaware of us.
Rare book appraiser Michael Slicker has owned Lighthouse Books, ABAA in St. Petersburg, Florida, for 40 years. Lighthouse Books, ABAA specializes in antiquarian books, serving St. Petersburg, Tampa, the Tampa Bay area and all of Florida. In addition to rare books, out-of-print books, used books, antique maps, vintage prints, and antique photographs, Lighthouse Books, ABAA also offers expert appraisals of antiquarian books, maps, prints, photographs, and ephemera.

Of course, we'll have a collection of carefully selected volumes available for purchase but we'll also take a look at your books and evaluate them. We'll give you a rough idea of what they are and what they might be worth. We perform a similar service at the Friends of the Library event periodically, and we're always happy to do it.
There are a number of local authors and literary dignitaries scheduled for the event as well, including our friends Colette Bancroft, book editor at Tampa Bay Times, and Lee Irby, author of the new novel Unreliable. Theirs should be an interesting discussion of the author as an unreliable narrator.
Oxford Exchange is, of course, also a restaurant, so come hungry and enjoy some of the delectable offering on the menu.
You can get more information about the OE Book Fair here. See you Sunday.
