The Florida Bibliophile Society

Each year, the members of the Florida Bibliophile Society man the Hospitality Table at the entrance to the Book Fair, greet the booklovers as they come in, and invite them to receive the Society's newsletter.  There's no book fair this year, but we want to invite you to read our newsletter. Here it is: The Florida Bibliophile. Email floridabibliophiles@gmail.com to get on the mailing list.
