[CANCELLED] newportFILM Screening of The Booksellers

March 26, 2020, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Redwood Library and Athenæum


The Redwood is pleased to host a screening of The Booksellers in partnership with newportFILM. D.W. Young’s elegant and absorbing documentary is a lively tour of New York’s book world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers, past and present: from the Park Avenue Armory’s annual Antiquarian Book Fair, where original editions can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars; to the Strand and Argosy bookstores, still standing against all odds; to the beautifully crammed apartments of collectors and buyers. The film, executive produced by Parker Posey, features a range of commentators, including Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Gay Talese, and a community of dedicated book dealers and collectors who strongly believe in the wonder of the object and what it holds within.

Admission $18. To purchase tickets, please visit newportfilm.com.
