St. Louis Mercantile Library Fair Review

St. Louis Weekend, May 4, 5, and 6, 2012

As with so many places, Spring came early this year to St. Louis, and there were many wonderful gardens on the way to Mr. Wizard’s.

It was a beautiful weekend on the University of St. Louis campus, with only a few thunder storms. The fair, May 4, 5 and 6, was very well attended – by far the biggest crowd ever.  There was interest in the Fred Shane material as well as that of Peggy Bacon and Anne Ryan.

And, of course, no visit is complete without a trip to the St. Louis Mercantile Library itself; there was an installation of Worlds’ Fair related material.
