Sunday at the Oxford Exchange Book Fair: Book evaluations and books for you to buy

We're setting up shop at the Oxford Exchange Book Fair in Tampa this Sunday, and, quite frankly, we're looking forward to it. This is the third year for this delightful little event and it gets better every year.

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.
