Glenda & Gerry are both Hon. Life Members of the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association.
The idea of bookseller Gerry Mosdell was to take books out to the people with “Book Fairs”. The first event was held in the Hotel Eden in Kensington in 1972.
The Fairs expanded rapidly and after the first York Book Fair in October 1974 the Provincial Booksellers’ Fairs Association or PBFA was founded.
The fairs now cover the length and breadth of the country. The members display a wide variety of books both second-hand and antiquarian and often with prints, maps and ephemera. The PBFA Code of Practice ensures all items are correctly described and fairly priced.
PBFA is a ‘Not for Profit’ association and the fairs are run by volunteers and supported by staff at the Royston offices.
The PBFA has also supported a number of awards and exhibitions. Those include the Appeal to save the Opie Collection of Children’s Literature for the Bodleian Library.
