ABEBOOKS Bloggers Visit the ILAB Pop Up Fairs in Vienna and Chicago

April 23 is going to be another special day for booklovers. UNESCO's 2016 World Book & Copyright Day will feature book-related events on a worldwide scale with ILAB's contribution being a series of pop-up book fairs displaying rare and collectable books from the four corners of the Earth. ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers) is repeating a successful programme introduced in 2015 on World Book Day that put rare books in front of thousands of people. Last year ILAB activities raised more than 10,000 Euros for UNESCO's Forest Whitaker Peace and Development Initiative (WPDI), which provides literacy assistance to children in South Sudan.
