Please listen to this special announcement from Sarah Smith, manager of the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair. This is about the change in dates from our usual time on the second full weekend in March to April 21-23, 2017. This change is taking place because the New York Antiquarian Book Fair and two shadow fair are moving to our usual time in March. We have taking this step to accommodate booksellers and book buyers who attend the New York show and are regulars at our show.
