Harrer Book Sale at the Belleair Garden Club Oct 9th

The Belleair Garden Club will have a book sale of the library of the late Lee J. Harrer on Saturday, October 9th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Lee J. Harrer was a founding member of the Florida Bibliophile Society, as well as a bookseller ("The Midnight Bookman.").

In addition to regular bookseller stock, the sale will include books from Lee Harrer's personal collection, including: Books About Books, books about Chicago, Brazil, and London, and books about the British Royalty.

Lee Harrer donated the majority of his "Books About Books" Collection to the University of Tampa before he died.  However, hundreds of "Books About Books" were duplicates of books the University of Tampa already had in their library and they are for sale.

The club is located at 903 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Belleair, Florida 33756.

The sale is cash only. Mask wearing is required.  Masks will be available at the Belleair Garden Club on the day of the sale.

Every now and then I like to read some of my old posts.   Since my wife calls my books moldy oldies I thought I would call my old posts moldy oldies as well.  Each month I will select a post that I have enjoyed reading more than once.  And I shall give you the opportunity to do the same.
