Book lovers’ bonanza

Rob Warren, owner of Skyline Books on W. 18th St., is one of the 70 book dealers who, combined, will be selling 100,000 books at P.S. 3’s 26th Annual Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair. The fair features first editions, specialized and autographed copies of books, some worth thousands of dollars, maps, prints, even old issues of The Villager. Last year, the fair raised $26,000 for P.S. 3’s arts and music programs. “We get collectors, browsers, people who love books,” noted Bob McGlouglin, an organizer. Last year, the Village’s Monica Lewinsky was spotted with a shopping bag full of books — containing a first edition of “Leaves of Grass” perhaps? Other locals who have been known to enjoy the fair are author Calvin Trillin and musician Joe Jackson. The book fair occurs Fri., Feb. 25, 6-9 p.m. ($12); Sat., Feb. 26, noon-6 p.m. ($6); and Sun., Feb. 27, noon-5 p.m. ($4) — ticket is valid for all three days — at P.S. 3 at 490 Hudson St., between Christopher and Grove Sts.
