DAC Nights: The Booksellers and Book Swap!

December 20, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Come to the Dougherty Arts Center on Wednesday, December 20, 2023, and take in a screening of the 2020 documentary The Booksellers. Explore the world of rare books collectors and dealers in New York, celebrating book culture and book lovers alike!

While you’re at the DAC, why not also prepare for the holidays with an early celebration of Jolabokaflod, the Icelandic tradition of giving and receiving new books. DAC will have a collection of books ready for swap, so bring your own to spread the love of reading and holidays!

This event is free! Registration is required for the film screening, as space is limited. Register at the Eventbrite: https://DACNightsTheBooksellers.eventbrite.com

If you just want to swap books, the lobby will be open to anyone with a new or gently used book and a dream! Books will be available to swap starting at 7:00pm through 9:30pm. Please consult the event page for more information on what books are accepted for the event! The film will begin promptly at 7:30pm, with a runtime of 100 minutes. Don’t have a book to swap? Some starter books will be available for the bookless. Any leftover books will be donated to Austin Public Library’s Recycled Reads program.
