Event Spotlight: Newbery Library Book Fair

The Newberry Library Book Fair is simply a book lover's dream. Lasting four days (Thursday-Sunday) and offering over 100,000 donated books in more than 60 categories for prices averaging below $2, you just can't go wrong by stopping over for an hour or two of browsing. Admission to the fair is free - check the website for the scheduled hours on each day. On Satuday, there will also be bughouse music and soapbox debates across the street in Washington Square Park. 60 W. Walton. Call 312-943-9090 for general information.
