There are just a few days left before the 34th annual Florida Antiquarian Book Fair--and we at Books Tell You Why are looking forward to more than just the sunshine. It's the oldest book fair in the Southeastern United States, and it never fails to provide fascinating books and literary conversation. If you find yourself in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area between March 13-15, be sure to stop by. We'll even provide you with free tickets.


The theme of the fair is "The Truth and Beauty of Fiction." Click here to find out more about the fair and preview the books that we will be exhibiting.

We'll bring a fine selection of our stock including classics of US & Latin American literature, children’s books, fly fishing, and antiquarian high points. See first editions of Caldecott Medal winners, Ernest Hemingway, and Winnie the Pooh. Browse fine press and new arrivals by Charles van Sandwyk.

Let us know if you'd like to reserve a title. Or conversely, if you're interested in a different book from our store, send us an email and we'll do our best to bring it along.

Don't be a stranger. Sign up for your free tickets and visit us in alcove #7!
