12 noon, Sydney, Australia – The Mexican wave of ILAB Pop Up Fairs begins!

24 hours of ILAB Pop Up Fairs across the world on April 23, 2015! This is how the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) will celebrate UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day 2015. It’s amazing! From Sydney to Portland, Oregon, there will be over 30 bookish flashmobs across the world! Books in abundance!

At 12 noon, local time Sydney, the worldwide series of ILAB Pop Ups was officially opened at the State Library of New South Wales by Professor Dame Marie Bashir, former Governor of New South Wales, book collector and much loved Australian, together with ANZAAB President Jörn Harbeck and Sally Burdon, ILAB Committee and  co-convenor of the ILAB Pop Up Book Fairs.
