ARKANSAS BOOK AND PAPER SHOW
9 a.m. Jacksonville Community Center. $5.

OK, so I suppose that some awful day in the (hopefully distant) future, the printing presses will shut down and everything anyone reads will be on some sort of glowing screen on a device that's so magical and high-tech that my feeble imagination can't even conceive of it.

But until then, there will still be those old souls who want to have it on a physical format, be it vinyl, cassette, 8-track or CD for the music heads or hardbound, paperback or book-on-tape for the bibliophiles.

If you're the sort who fits that description, you might want to head to the 27th annual Arkansas Book and Paper Show, which "promises to be an exciting event for collectors, historians, and those who want to view museum quality materials all available for purchase," said Jeff Baskin, show director in a press release. "Many dealers are from out of state, bringing with them postcards, rare books, leather-bound books, printed ephemera, maps, children's books and much more."

Sounds like a good time for book geeks, obsessive map collectors and other assorted lovers of the printed word. The show continues Sunday, opening at 10 a.m.
