WATCH LIVE: Back in September, we scheduled Carrie Carnes, owner of Old Tampa Book Company and an exhibitor at the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair, but computers wouldn't cooperate and Carrie didn't appear on Rare Book Cafe. Now the technical glitches have been corrected and Carrie is joining us -- Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Carrie and her husband Matthew Saxon took over the store last year from David and Ellen Brown, who started the store and owned it for more than 20 years. David and Ellen are beloved book dealers who are well known to longtime book fair goers. The Browns retired and moved from the area to be closer to family but they will always be remembered.
You can watch the program live right here on the blog or you can join us on Blab.im. Either way, you're in for a treat. The program will be recorded and will be available right here on replay after the program is over.
If you're new to Rare Book Cafe and to the Blab platform, here's a suggestion that will make your experience easier. Use a Chrome or Firefox browser. In our experience, Chrome has been the better pf the two but either one will work. As far as we know, none of the other browsers out there will work. However, the platform is in beta and still being developed, so who knows what will happen. Sign into your Twitter account first then open a new window and go to Blab.im. The Blab platform will pick up your Twitter information and apply it to you new Blab account. It's that easy.
We hope you'll come join the conversation.
