Monday will be a good time to mosey out to St. Charles. The German Chapter of the St. Charles Sister Cities has invited me to come out and talk about one of my favorite subjects, St. Louis Germans.
I’ll do some readings about St. Louis Germans from all three of my books, Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans;
The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and the Hard Hats Who Built the Gateway Arch; and
Hoosiers and Scrubby Dutch: St. Louis’ South Side. I’ll also talk about the campaign to provide markers for streets whose German names were changed during World War I.
The meeting will be at 7 p.m. Monday at the 28/65 Brewhouse, 2865 Veterans Memorial Parkway, St. Charles. Dinner starts at 6 p.m.
