Dive into a treasure trove of rare books, manuscripts, autographs, maps, drawings and other fine ephemera (think authentic White House letters from Jackie Kennedy or 1st editions of Sylvia Plath poetry) at the 42nd annual Washington Antiquarian Book Fair. Featuring art, science, medicine, geography, travel, sports, music, classics, children’s books and more, WABF offers something for every interest and every price point.
Plus check out an exciting night of fast-paced literary games (hosted by Capitol Hill's own Labryinth Games & Puzzles) on Friday, and on Saturday, get your own personalized, off-the-cuff poem, typed on a vintage machine by Typewriter Rodeo.
