Newberry Library's 32nd Annual Book Fair: Thu-Sun, July 28-31: https://www.newberry.org/2016-book-fair
and the same weekend:
Friends of the Oak Park Library Sale: Fri night & Sat, July 29 & 30: http://oppl.org/get-involved/friends-library/annual-book-fair
Imagine--in one weekend I'll get all that book-buying out of my system for the rest of the year (yeah, right).
I get that. I'm missing the Newberry and Oak Park sales, but don't feel too sad for me - I'll be in Venice.
I don't know if I'll traipse out to Lombard, but there's always the Hyde Park - Kenwood Community Conference book sale on Columbus Day weekend to which to look forward.
Yay Venice! My favorite place in Italy (of the half-dozen visited), and just plain one of my top 5. :D
I know I will. .Monkey., it's one of my favorite places in the entire world! Last time I was there, I discovered the Libreria Acqua Alta, which has maze-like space and cats, as do all good used book stores, but also stashes books in gondolas. Very fun.
This time, I'm going specifically to see a production of The Merchant of Venice, being held outdoors in the Campo di Ghetto Nuovo, in observance of the 500th anniversary of the establishment of the ghetto.
