UGA Press to sell ‘Dirty Books’

The University of Georgia Press will sell deeply discounted books at its Dirty Book Sale from 9 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Oct. 16-17 on the Tate Student Center Plaza.

The book sale-held by UGA Press every two years-features slightly damaged or shopworn books from the Press’ Athens warehouse. There will be thousands of books, most priced under $5, covering a range of subjects including African-American studies, American and Georgia history, civil rights history, Civil War history, decorative arts, ecology, environmental history, field guides, folklore, natural history and Southern studies as well as fiction and poetry.

“People often ask when our next campus book sale will be,” said Nicole Mitchell, director of the press. “There are always some amazing deals to be had, and people have really grown to love this event. It’s also a good opportunity for the press to let students and the community know about our mission.”
