Old Algonquin Books
author John Dunning
Another great book fair in Denver has passed. If you missed it, you can plan for it next year. It's always the first Friday and Saturday in August.
Old Algonquin Books, selling used and antiquarian books, was named after the Algonquin Hotel in NYC where authors and wits gathered in the 1920s. The bookstore was opened in east Denver in 1984. After ten fun years the shop was closed and it became an internet and mail order business. John and Helen are founding members of the Rocky Mountain Antiquarian Booksellers Association. Read more.
