St. Louis Book Fair

When: Thu., May 4, 4-9 p.m., Fri., May 5, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sat., May 6, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sun., May 7, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. 2017

The peripatetic St. Louis Book Fair has found a new home — Greensfelder Recreation Complex in Queeny Park (550 Weidman Road, Ballwin; www.stlouisbookfair.org). It's a larger location than prior venues, which means there will be more books available for area readers. There will also be more CDs, DVDs and assorted paraphernalia out in the open, but you don't go to a book sale and leave with DVDs. The St. Louis Book Fair is open from 4 to 9 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday (May 4 to 7). There's also a one-hour shopping session open only to the elderly and the disabled from 8 to 9 a.m. Saturday, which should be less crowded and more easily navigable. Admission is $10 on opening night and free all other days.
