A photo from the Women in the Book Trade breakfast on Friday, featuring dozens of women booksellers from around the world (including us!):

One last dinner at The Havelock Tavern, after the fair, including friends from Peter Harrington Rare Books, Pirages Fine Books, B&B Rare Books, Keel Row Books, Alembic Rare Books, and more:
