Bibliophiles unite! Step inside the leather-and-musk-scented world of New York City’s rare book world, an eclectic crew of wheelers and dealers dedicated to preserving history one musty tome at a time. These stranger-than-fiction relics are more than just novel—they are links to our shared past. Executive produced by Parker Posey, The Booksellers celebrates the value of books as tangible objects at a time when chain stores and e-readers threaten their very existence.

Recommended for ages 8+
