This Glitteratti Life, Part 8,732


I went to book sales on Thursday and Friday.  Thursday, I encountered Darrell Schweitzer, who expounded learnedly on which contemporary books become instantly valuable as soon as they fall out of print.  And Friday I ran across book vivant and international man of mystery Michael Dirda, who was in town for a meeting of the Sons of the Copper Beeches and taking a break from visiting the Barnes by buying an armload of books.

Michael Dirda is pictured above.
