Tony Yuschak, of Paoli, got a shot of nostalgia on Saturday at the throwback adult book fair event at Latchkey Records in Philadelphia, writes Erin McCarthy for The Philadelphia Inquirer

Grown-Ass Book Fair took inspiration from middle school book fairs from years ago, but it was adjusted for adults who can afford now their hobbies. The theme resonated with many visitors who showed up to browse old-school comic books and games, take a photo in front of a “teen heartthrob wall,” and laugh about memories with fellow patrons. 

Yuschak and Liz Sabel found out about the event online and then decided to drive from Chester County to Philadelphia and make a day of it. 

Yuschak also decided to be extra adventurous and get a tarot reading for the first time. 

“I’m currently a little skeptical,” he said after the reading. But “it was fun, and there were some interesting insights and parallels with what I’m working through right now.” 

After their Latchkey visit, the pair had planned to visit Reading Terminal Market and continue their day at Morris Arboretum.
