I'm very excited to roll out a major new world-class book fair which will be located in the large well-lit ballroom in a first-class venue, the Marriott Gateway in Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia. The date is April 17-18, 2020
Why Crystal City?
Crystal City is a fast-growing suburb of DC located along the Potomac River in northeast Virginia. Amazon has chosen Crystal City for its new east coast headquarters which will ultimately bring 25,000 good paying jobs to the city. Reagan airport is literally next door and a quick five-minute taxi ride. Two Metro lines (Blue and Yellow) are next to the hotel which is accessible without leaving the underground station. It is easily accessible from anywhere in DC, Virginia or Maryland.
I am pleased that VABA, the Virginia Antiquarian Booksellers Association, which produces a fair in Richmond, will move that fair to September and sponsor this new spring fair. Moving forward, this will be the only fair in the DC metro area at this time of year.
