Greater St. Louis Book Fair
May 2 - May 5
What is this fair all about? Since 1950, the Book Fair has been a favorite spring destination of book lovers and collectors nationwide. Volunteers work year-round gathering over one million new, gently used, and rare items from individuals, estates, businesses, and other organizations. Fair proceeds stay in the metro area and assist local education and literacy programs with operational expenses, student aid, and other financial needs.
What will you find you ask? You won’t believe the many treasures to be found for all ages — hardback and paperback books, plus records, CDs, DVDs, comics and ephemera. Many of these items can be purchased between $1 and $5.
Plus hundreds of rare and collectible items that are located in the Collector’s Corner section at the fair. The inventory includes first editions, limited editions, out of print editions, signed copies and other treasures. All such items are sold on a first come first serve basis and prices vary.
