Yellow Springs Book Fair, Aug. 18

Great bargains as well as rare antiquarian books await shoppers at the 32nd annual Yellow Springs Book Fair. Hours are 9am to 4pm, Saturday, August 18, on the grounds of Mills Lawn School.

Admission is free, and there is no charge to sell books. No registration is necessary.

More than 30 sellers, from five states as well as locally, will offer everything from comics, history and novels to fine collector’s volumes, according to long-time organizer Mary Alice Wilson, owner of Dark Star Books. Prices run from 25 cents to hundreds of dollars.

“Because of our continuing growth and reputation, we attract quite a range – from rare book dealers to kids on blankets selling their outgrown Nancy Drew or Twilight books,” says Wilson. People like the shady location, too. It allows for comfortable browsing and gives kids a place to play while grown-ups shop.

Early shoppers find incredible bargains, Wilson advises, and the number of books and comics guarantees good shopping all day.

Seller setup for the book fair begins at 7 a.m. No one is allowed on the school grounds before that time. Visitors can find lodging options at . For ore information, call Dark Star Books at (937) 767-9400 or Super-Fly Comics and Games at (937) 767-1445. Email inquiries to
