The 47th annual Dayton Book Fair is at the Coliseum Building at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. It's a great way to find affordable books, music and movies.

The Air Force Museum commemorates Veterans Day so you can interact with more than 25 veterans who will be at aircraft throughout the museum. Included are a retired crew chief and flight nurse, as well as navigators, pilots and engineers. You can ask questions and interact with these aviation experts who will tell personal stories and offer first-hand knowledge. The "Plane Talks" is Saturday from 10:30am to 3:30pm.

When a Harvard Ph.D. student is struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden, she sets out on a virtual journey to document her story as she fights a disease that medicine forgot.

Donations are welcome at the door. This is Sunday at 3:30pm at the Neon.
