The Rochester Area Booksellers Association (RABA) is a group that was formed by independent book and manuscript shops in Rochester and surrounding areas. The purpose of RABA has always been to preserve the local book community and to provide quality books to the readers and collectors of the area.
RABA and RIT Press co-sponsor the Rochester Antiquarian Book Fair.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we were forced to cancel our 2020 book fair, and it looks as though the same will be true for 2021 as well. We are currently exploring ways you can help support the book fair during this difficult time, so make sure to visit our Facebook page or check back here for updates. We look forward to getting back to normal when it is safe for the exhibitors, customers, and staff who help make this event a success. We hope to see you soon!
