Program

Rare Books LA, with support from Biblio.com, Fine Books & Collections, and KPCC/LAist, is pleased to offer a series of virtual tours and talks in conjunction with the Rare Books LA Virtual Book Fair on October 15-18, 2020. Join us for virtual walking tours of the book fair floor with our experts to learn more about everything from collecting culinary pamphlets and cookbooks to gaining a better understanding of editions and imprints while building your own collections. We are also hosting special talks that include a roundtable with collectors and a discussion of legacy planning for your personal collection. Of course, what book fair would be complete without happy hour? Join us for a virtual mixer where we will collectively share a tipple, learn more about the history of cocktail books, and pick up tips from a professional mixologist.

Thanks to the generous support from our sponsors, all of the sessions are free!
