Peter Dast of the Bookworks in Evansville, Wisconsin, has kindly sent us scans of two postcards announcing Midwest Bookhunters book fairs from back in the 1980s.
“I was probably at the 1987 show,” he writes, “but not the 1984.” We publish these postcards hoping they will not be mistaken for announcements of coming events. More importantly, we hope that they will attract to the Newsletter further documentation of the organization’s history.
His submission prompted us to create a Flickr account, MWABA Archive, where we hope to post more ephemera and other items and photos related to the history of the organizaton. If you have something to share, please send them to us and we will upload items of interest.
