Book lovers peruse tables laden with books, searching for the perfect "companions" they would take home in boxes, bags and even grocery caddies.

On a bright Saturday morning, hundreds of people stopped by the Eastern Qu├ębec Learning Centre to take advantage of the annual book fair organized by the Quebec City Women's Club (QCWC).

Last year marked the 75th anniversary of the QCWC and the book fair itself has become an autumn institution for Quebec City's Anglophone community, with the first fair occurring in 1963.
