BookFest St. Louis

September 22, 2018  

Book lovers of all ages can celebrate St. Louis’ literary heritage at BookFest St. Louis, presented Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, by the Central West End, Left Bank Books and the Left Bank Books Foundation.

The festival takes place in the heart of the Central West End, home to “Writer’s Corner” — where statues of authors and one-time St. Louisans Kate Chopin, T.S. Eliot, Tennessee Williams and William Burroughs pay homage to the neighborhood’s literary legacy.

Festival-goers will be able to enjoy panels highlighting the best of contemporary literary fiction, poetry, memoir, science fiction, young adult fiction, mystery and history, as well as participate in family-friendly activities including book sales, literary crafts, live music and more within the McPherson Avenue festival zone and at other venues throughout the Central West End. All BookFest St. Louis activities are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.

Stay tuned for updates on the 2018 festival and authors. For more information, visit
