In addition to our in-person event on July 18, we are offering our inaugural Virtual Detroit Bookfest all weekend long!
Because of the limited # of in-person vendors we are allowed this year, we are experimenting by creating a geographically boundless Virtual Bookfest open to ANYONE ANYWHERE in the world.
This event is FREE to attend. We encourage you to visit the Virtual Bookfest and help support these amazing vendors!

Rare Book Hub Bruce McKinney
Rare Book Hub is one of the top websites globally for all things rare books. Featuring news, auction listings, and more, it is a tremendous resource for dealers and collectors.
RBH was founded in 2002 by internationally well-known rare books expert Bruce McKinney to help gather and highlight information on rare books, antiquarian, collectible, OOP, ephemera, etc.
