Home of the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair
Thirty years ago the Florida Antiquarian Booksellers Association put on the first Florida Antiquarian Book Fair in the ballroom of the old Plant Hotel (University of Tampa). Fourteen years ago, having outgrown that venue and others, the book fair moved to The Coliseum in St. Petersburg. It has been there ever since and will be in March.
Not long ago we were reminiscing with Larry Kellogg, who ran the book fair for more than two decades, for a video that will be published on the new Florida Antiquarian Bookdealers Association blog. This is some of the video.
