Off to the Tennessee Antiquarian Book Fair

We're on the road again, bound for Davy Crockett country and the Tennessee Antiquarian Book Fair this coming weekend. This year, it's at the University of the South in Sewanee, moved from nearby Cowan. We're always excited to be a part of this book fair. Not only do we see longtime customers and longtime bookseller friends (many of the regulars at the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair exhibit in Tennessee), but this is a great place for bibliophiles. Tennessee is home of the Southern Agrarians, the writers and poets with a particularly southern sensitivity who arose at Vanderbilt University in the 1920s and 1930s. Accordingly we're taking works by Agrarians like Robert Penn Warren, Allen Tate and John Crowe Ransom and other Southern literature as well as English literature and leatherbound books (always quite popular in Tennessee). If you're in the area, stop by to see us. The book fair is in the Fowler Center on Texas Avenue. If not, we'll see you when we get back.
