"Ain't we got fun?" Celebrating the Roaring Twenties

TICKETS NOW ON SALE: We're looking forward to the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair in March as we celebrate the Roaring Twenties, a time of prosperity and social upheaval. In literature, It was a time that produced such masterpieces and The Sun Also Rises and The Great Gatsby. In pop culture, there were the silly flagpole sitters and the dance craze, The Charleston. Comics such as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton held forth on the silver screen. Babe Ruth was the King of Swat and some saw gangster Al Capone as a hero.

We’ll have more later but that’s just a taste of the excitement as we return to The Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg for the 40th Florida Antiquarian Book Fair.  

As always, dealers from all over will have books, maps, prints, ephemera, photographs, autographs, and more — from all eras, not just the Roaring Twenties.
