Two days before the release/signing party for my book on the Gateway Arch, it’s time to talk about everything that will be going on. Besides the sale of The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, the Schemers and the Hard Hats Who Built the Gateway Arch, you’ll have a first-time ever chance to have me autograph it. You can see a 16-foot-long exhibit of newspaper articles and pictures about the Arch and Arch grounds and a slide show with more than 100 pictures of the Arch and Arch grounds. Plus there will be readings, a chance to meet people involved with the writing of the book and some marvelous food. So come out to the Tavern of Fine Arts, 313 Belt Ave., from 2-5 p.m. Saturday for a great time.
