Available Friday, April 24 via Virtual Screening Room

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson — their eccentricities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. Featuring interviews with Fran Lebowitz, Parker Posey, Gay Talese, Susan Benne and more, director D.W. Young’s documentary invites viewers inside their small but fascinating world of obsessives, intellects and dreamers who are quietly responsible for the survival of history as we know it.
