Yes, nine days before the release party for The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, the Schemers, and the Hard Hats Who Built the Gateway Arch, the books arrived. You know how cars have that new-car smell? This has a new-book smell. You can get one, personally autographed and smelling all new, at the release party, from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, April 5 at the Tavern of Fine Arts, 313 Belt Ave., in the Central West End.
