Largest Book Fair in the Midwest Returns to West County Center

Tuesday April 22, 2014

Browsing through a bookstore is a good way to relax, but few bookstores compare to what you can find at the Greater St. Louis Book Fair. A huge selection of books, DVDs and CDs will fill the lower level parking garage at the West County Center this weekend. For collectors, there are also tables of rare books, first editions and autographs. Admission is free except for Thursday night when there's a $10 cover to get in. Most of the books cost less than $5, and the final day of the sale on Sunday is half-price day. Money raised from the book fair goes to a variety of St. Louis charities.
