    Caldecott Winning Illustrators Series: Berta and Elmer Hader

    Tue, 06 Apr 2021 07:39:00 Permalink
    Why is it that the books we read as children have such an impact on our lives? Is it because they offer some of the first reflections of the thoughts and experiences that we encounter early on? Is it because they grant us the opportunity to take in stories in a way that educates and entertains in a format perfectly geared toward that point in our development? Or maybe it's the way children's literature can transcend time and space. After all, even as we grow, it offers us an opportunity to connect with our histories as well as with the Read More

She readily agreed to come along on a joint book hunting and genealogical research expedition to Burlington, Vermont this past weekend. Old Saratoga Books was signed up as an exhibitor at the Vermont Antiquarian Booksellers Association Spring Fair on Saturday, April 8th at the Burlington Hilton and Barb was interested in doing some family history research at the University of Vermont Library's Special Collections, so we made it an extended weekend.We started our journey Read More

    Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:31:33 Permalink
    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
