Metrograph’s Film Book Fair returns for the 2018 holiday season with hundreds of newly acquired vintage cinema books, out-of-print monographs, rare periodicals, and ephemera. From biographies of favorite Hollywood stars like Barbara Stanwyck, to treatises on cinema written by Éric Rohmer and Claude Chabrol, this is an entirely new bounty of treasures. In addition to a gift-wrapping station, vendors will include New York Review Books, Posteritati, Light Industry, and more.
In conjunction with the Holiday Film Book Fair, Metrograph will present Sara Berman's Dream Double Feature on December 15 with Maira and Alex Kalman in-person to sign copies of Sara Berman’s Closet on December 15th. On December 16th, Ed Halter will discuss the newly edited From the Third Eye: The Evergreen Review Film Reader, Grove Press, and its defunct film company, Grove Films, with a film screening. A table of supplemental material of Grove Press, Grove Films, and the Evergreen Review will be available for purchase during the Holiday Book Fair.
In addition, a members/press preview of the Metrograph Holiday Book Fair will be on Friday, December 14th, with a reception. Memberships are available to purchase online now; more information here.
