Rare Book Cafe 2.0 is on the air today at 2:30 p.m. ET Today's guest: Kara Accettola, Little Sages Books, ABAA

Welcome to the third episode of Rare Book Cafe 2.0, the rebooted program now on YouTube (broadcasting live on Google Hangouts on the Air). Rare Book Cafe originated on in 2015 but the platform shut down in August 2016.

Guest: Kara Accettola, owner of Little Sages Books, ABAA in Fort Lauderdale. Kara has a primary focus on women, non-elitist narratives, art, social history and culture. A new 'microcatalog' project began this year, with selected thematic gatherings in digital and printed form.

Miami Beach bookseller Steven Eisenstein is the host of Rare Book Cafe. Thorne Donnelley, owner of Liberty Books in West Palm Beach, and Lindsay Thompson, owner of Henry Bemis Books in Charlotte, North Carolina, are co-hosts. Rare Book Cafe features Edie Eisenstein's Very Small Bookshelf.

T. Allan Smith is creator and executive producer.

Rare Book Cafe is sponsored by the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair, celebrating its 36th year on April 21-23, 2016 at The Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg. Florida Antiquarian Book Fair features more than 100 booksellers offering rare, used, and collectible book, vintage prints, antique maps, vintage photographs, autographs, and collectible printed matter of all kinds.
