Karen Lillis says,

It’s almost here! I’m madly preparing for Pittsburgh’s SIXTH Annual Holiday Book Sale, featuring Steel City’s favorite INDIE book vendors. This is a great way for readers and holiday shoppers to browse a wide variety of books from Pittsburgh’s knowledgeable literary curators and bookish creators. Both new and gently used, bestsellers and one of a kind finds, titles by local authors and books on spectacular sale. Fiction, poetry, memoirs, art books, graphic novels, collectible books, children’s books, gift-ready blank books, and much more. Amid the buzz about Amazon’s questionable ethics in their search for HQ2, this event is also a great way to showcase and celebrate the best of Pittsburgh’s own hard-working literary indies: Indie booksellers, indie publishers, indie book creators, and indie press authors.

Confirmed vendors thus far:

Air & Nothingness Press (gorgeously designed science fiction, poetry, & lit in translation!)

Amazing Books (a wide array of gently used literature!)

City Books (used and rare books, featuring CityBox book subscriptions!)

Copacetic Comics (special selection of new books with an emphasis on SALES!)

Karen Antonelli (artist and maker of beautiful blank books and cards!)

Karen’s Book Row (Hosting bookseller–featuring feminist fiction, LGBT lit, African American authors, and counterculture reads!)

Vers Libris (fine bookbinder and creator of journals and notebooks!)

Very Important Books (paperback editions of the best reads of the last several decades!)

First editions TBA–There will be at least one dealer specializing in first editions of modern literature
