Assistant to the Editor

The Hyde Park Used Book Sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Oct. 12 and 13, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 14., in the courtyard at the Hyde Park Shopping Center, at 55th Street and Lake Park Avenue.

This year’s estimated selection of 35,000 books spans 50 subject categories, according to George Rumsey, a director for the annual event’s organizing group, the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference (HP-K CC).

Rumsey, who will help set up the event, said he expects books to spill over from the sale’s 80 eight-foot tables: “We use up every bit of available space.”
