The three-day sale will feature thousands of assorted books of all genres, including several early signed Pearl Buck novels; a signed (and rare) copy of L.L. Bean’s autobiography; over 60 boxes of art, antiques, photography, and architecture books; and lots of fiction, particularly mysteries.

The book sale begins on July 11, with a Friends-only sale from 5 to 7 p.m. Members can preview the sale and buy a set number of books. New members can sign up ahead of time at the Rockport Public Library or at the book sale. A year’s membership is $15 for individuals, $20 for families, and $50 for patrons and businesses.
