Now in its 40th year, the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival is one of the largest in the Unites States. The festival highlights literary, media, business, sports and entertainment luminaries for audiences of more than 10,000 each year. Bookend events lead up to and follow the two-week November festival, which celebrates “National Jewish Book Month.”  

Festival events are coordinated through the J’s Cultural Arts Department, with the help of a committee of community volunteers. The festival is cosponsored by more than 60 local organizations and supported by corporate and individual sponsors throughout the bi-state region. Monies raised from the festival and year-round literary events go to J scholarships and cultural arts programming.

Jean Margul and Robert Germain are the 2018 Festival Co-Chairs.
