With the approach of autumn, it's time to think of cozy activities, like curling up with some good reads. If you're in the market for new-to-you novels, or want to expand your collection of timeless tomes, the event of the year approaches. The 2012 Rochester Antiquarian Book Fair will take place Saturday, September 8, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at Minnett Hall at the Dome Arena (2695 E. Henrietta Road).
This year's exhibitors hail from Vermont, Canada, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Indiana, and all over New York State, and include bookstores as well as private booksellers.
Admission is free, and there will be an on-site raffle for free tickets to an October theatrical production of "Mary Poppins," donated by the Rochester Broadway Theatre League. For more information, call 325-2050, or visit rochesterbooksellers.wordpress.com.
