Dozens of booksellers from around the country will be offering their most interesting, most memorable, and most hard-to-find books for two days this September at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 200 Fairgrounds Rd., Castle Rock.
The Rocky Mountain Book and Paper Fair, now in its 39th year, is a delight for booklovers of all ages, tastes and budgets. It’s a chance to see books from your childhood you never thought you’d see again, or rare copies of books you never thought you’d ever see, or books you’ve never even heard of that grab your attention and won’t let go.
The fair also will have a large offering of ephemera: Scrapbooks, photographs, posters, letters and other documentation of times gone by.
“Book fairs are unique because dealers bring together books and other materials for just one time and for just one place, and that’s what makes them such an attraction for booksellers,” said fair organizer Carol Mobley. “There’s also no greater accumulation of people who are extremely knowledgeable about books than at a bookfair, so this is a time to learn as well as to shop.”
The fair opens Friday, September 8 at 2 pm and runs to 8 pm. It opens again Saturday, September 9 from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is $57 for both days, but free passes are available from members of the Rocky Mountain Antiquarian Booksellers Association (RMABA.org), sponsor of the fair.
Parking is free, and food is available.
