Graham York

I have been a bookseller since 1982 and joined the ABA in 1992. I've been on the South West committee as treasurer for many years and have been involved in running ABA book fairs in Bath and Jersey (remember that one?), and I am currently the chairman of the Chelsea book fair committee. I have also been on various PBFA committees over the years and have organized dozens of fairs – I still run one in Tavistock, and I am actively involved in the annual Honiton Antiques Festival. I have had retail shops in a number of provincial locations and have been in the present one for twelve years. I have exhibited at all the Olympia book fairs bar one, and have not missed one at Chelsea. I have also exhibited at book fairs throughout Europe including Brussels, Mechelen, Maastricht, Barcelona and Madrid – not all of them ILAB, but all of a high standard. I am passionate about modern jazz and you might conceivably find me drumming in a jazz club somewhere.
