St. Louis Jewish Book Festival

The St. Louis Jewish Book Festival is an annual celebration of authors, books, and ideas, typically during the first two weeks of November, with additional “bookend” events year-round. The range of topics is vast: business, cooking, economics, family, fiction, history, music, religion, sports, and more.

The Festival is nationally recognized for both its excellence and its size – it is one of the largest in the country, with more than 10,000 audience members annually. People from all backgrounds and faiths attend the Festival events to hear premier speakers, share their thoughts, and ask questions.
