Found this great book about the Gateway Arch when we visited the Arch gift shop on Sunday. Oh, of course, it’s my own book, The Making of an Icon. You can buy at the same gift shop, on Amazon, at all kinds of local book stores and two places where I’ll appear on Saturday. I’ll sign books at the Fenton Barnes & Noble from 2-4:30 p.m. and from 5-10 p.m. at the German Cultural Society’s Sommerfest at 5020 West Four Ridge Road in House Springs.
