“The Booksellers” is a documentary for anyone who can still look at a book and see a dream, a magic teleportation device, an object that contains the world.” – Variety
“A treat for anyone who appreciates the printed word.” – The Hollywood Reporter
Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers.
THE BOOKSELLERS is a documentary directed by D.W. Young and executive produced by Parker Posey.
It provides an intimate look at the antiquarian book world and centers on the activities and people involved in the famed annual Antiquarian Book Fair at New York City’s Park Avenue Armory.
As many of us are staying at home and practicing social distancing, now is a great time to enjoy this delightful film and support the Book Club of California.
Says the Book Club: “You may even catch a glimpse of your bookseller friends and colleagues in their natural habitat.”
