#WABF18 Update!

Greetings From the Director

If your finger is on the book-fair pulse, you probably knew that there were four book fairs in April 2018! So, after WABF 2017, we announced our decision to move our fair from April to September for 2018 and 2019. We’re also returning to our former location. We had a splendid time at the Sphinx Club in D.C. in 2017, but in an effort to provide some continuity for our fabulous exhibitors and fair-goers, we will once again host the WABF at the Holiday Inn, Rosslyn. The Rosslyn Business District has seen a lot of growth and upgrades the past couple of years, and we’re excited to head back that way. We hope you are, too!

In the meantime, our partnerships with BookStore Movers, Sheir & Shim LLC and The Side Lobby continue to be an integral part of WABF, so big thanks to those fabulous folks!

New Exhibitors at WABF 2018

We are pleased to welcome some top-notch exhibitors to their very first WABF. When you visit, be sure to keep an eye open for Quaker Hill Books, Doyle’s Books, Meredith Miller, Dale Sorenson, Lighthouse Books, Harrogate Books, BioMed Rare Books, and Liberty Book Store.


Tickets can be purchased here or at the door.


This year, not only will you walk out of WABF bearing antiquarian treasure after antiquarian treasure... You’ll also get to go home with your very own personalized haiku! Be sure to visit The Haiku Guys + Gals when they join us Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.

Watch this space for more announcements as we get closer to game time: September 28th and 29th!
