Speaking of kids, Time Tested Books is hosting the ScholarShare Children's Book Festival at FairyTale Town in Land Park the weekend of September 26-27. Performers, storytellers, and illustrators will gather to entertain children and get them excited about reading. What could be better? Oh, yeah, the event is completely free.
And once those children grow and become obsessed book lovers and collectors, like me, they can attend the Sacramento Antiquarian Book Fair at the Scottish Rite Temple on September 20th. Kids get in free, all others pay $5 to browse the vast selection of used and rare books, pamphlets, photographs, first editions, maps, autographs...anything, really, that's old, on paper, and is worth something.
