The St. Louis Genealogical Society sponsors an annual pre-holiday Book Jamboree as a community service to the public. Genealogical and historical organizations around the greater St. Louis area will present their publications to the public. Several local authors, including Marilynne Bradley, Robbi Courtaway, Ann Fleming, NiNi Harris, Julius Hunter, and Don Marsh, will be on hand to sign their history-themed books.
Items of military interest, maps, and state and local history books will also be on sale. Additional items include resources for how to conduct genealogical research, publications geared to specific interests, such as St. Louis cemeteries, CDs of out-of-print books, and many volumes on St. Louis area history.
The Book Jamboree provides a wonderful opportunity to browse and purchase gifts for those looking for genealogical and historical resources for the holiday season.
Everyone attending this regional Book Jamboree will be entered into a drawing for several attendance prizes. This event is free and open to the public. Ample free parking is available.
