With eight days to go before the release/signing party for my new book, I was running around like crazy dropping off copies to TV, radio and newspaper types. I started in St. Louis Hills, hightailed it downtown, then sprinted to Webster and South County and came back downtown to hand out more copies. I’m beat. You’ll have any easier job to get your hands on The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, the Schemers, and the Hard Hats Who Built the Gateway Arch. Just come to my release party from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, April 5 at the Tavern of Fine Arts, 313 Belt Avenue in the Central West End.
