Here's what a few customers found at past book fairs:

  • "I found a well-preserved 1967 French edition of L'Art de l'Islam, complete with postcard-like images. Only $5!"
  • "I bought a like-new copy of The Contemporary Middle East: A Westview Reader for $2."
  • "My favorite find: A copy of The Diplomat's Wife, a non-fiction how-to guide on how to be the wife of a diplomat published in 1956. Highlights include sections on the hosting and entertaining traditions of virtually every world region, as well as a chapter on how to interact with women ambassadors. This gem for only 75 cents!"
  • "I found an intriguing book on the obstacles of development in Egypt titled, Political Vegetables? With such detailed and relevant information, my $2 was well spent! The MEI Book fair is a must attend for anyone searching for great reads at unbeatable prices!"
