Mid-September Curious Book Shop Newsletter

Join us for MIDWEST'S LARGEST Antiquarian Book & Paper Show...

The Midwest's LARGEST show of its kind, the 62nd Michigan Antiquarian Book and Paper Show, is coming to Lansing on Sunday, October 11th!
If it's on paper you're likely to find it at the Michigan Antiquarian Book and Paper Show. Organized by the Mid Michigan Antiquarian Book Dealers Association, this show has become a regular event for book and paper enthusiasts from across the country.
Over 160 tables and specialty dealers from across the United States will offer vintage, antiquarian and collectible books, magazines and paper items of all kinds for sale. There is something for everyone, including first editions and signed books, children's and illustrated books, regional histories, noir mysteries, newspapers back to the Civil War (and before), original movie posters, WWII posters and sports collectibles galore.
Antique photographs, lithographs along with autographs. Vintage advertising art, framed prints, beautifully-detailed maps and so much more! You'll find things you always wanted but never new existed!

This family-friendly event is sure to be a wonderful experience for booklovers of all ages and interests. 

Come and spend the day in a literary wonderland. In addition to the countless paper treasures you'll see, guests are encouraged to sit and enjoy the live acoustic music. Lunch is a snap, too! Refreshments (drinks, salads, wraps, pretzels and more) will be available for purchase from the Lansing Center concessions stand.
