Pequot Library’s Mid-Winter Book Sale is the little sister of the Library’s nationally known Summer Book Sale. The Mid-Winter Sale is smaller but more intimate with many treasures and bargains to be found. The sale runs from Saturday, January 17 – 18, 2015, from 9:00am – 5:00pm daily.
As the result of a mammoth donation, this sale will feature vinyl in outstanding condition, particularly in the Jazz and Classical categories. There are some sealed albums and many in pristine condition. Jazz includes albums from Verve, Jazzology, Citi, and Blue note, and Classical albums are ninety percent European imports. As always, there is plenty of Rock and Roll and other genres. The base price for albums remains highly affordable!
Two rare performances by former Paul Butterfield Blues Band keyboard player Mark Naftalin & Friends will be scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday. Mark Naftalin will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, in 2015. Naftalin, is known as one of the best blues piano players anywhere. He will hand-pick other equally renowned musicians to play acoustic music during the book sale. Go to pequotlibrary.org for confirmed times and performers.
Admission to the book sale is free and all Sale proceeds help fund Pequot Library’s over 500 annual programs, serving 30,000 participants of all ages.
