2017 Georgia Book and Paper Fair Cancellation PDF Print E-mail

Notice Concerning the 2017 Georgia Book and Paper Fair:

The Georgia Antiquarian Booksellers Association (GABA) Book Fair Committee has decided to cancel the upcoming Georgia Book and Paper Fair scheduled for Saturday, September 2nd and Sunday, September 3rd, 2017. Unfortunately we were not able to come to an contractual agreement to host the fair at the First Baptist Church of Decatur. At this time the Book Fair Committee has no immediate plans to host a fair in 2017.

We will be refunding all exhibitor deposits that were turned in from the 2016 fair in the near future. If there are any booksellers who have not received refunds within the next 30 days please contact David Hamilton at 404-805-0929 or email [email protected].

Thank you for your understanding.

Smythe Books

Jim Strawn is the classic example of a person taking a passion – in his case a penchant for collecting books – and turning it into a business in retirement.  In October, 2006, Jim, then age 65 and a former finance chief in the radio industry, along with his wife, Judy, opened their own store, Smythe Books, in Dunwoody, Georgia.
