A Toast to Edna Gravenhorst

1-Edna-Campos-GravenhorstSaturday from 11 am to 2 p.m., I’ll be signing my books with my good friend Edna Campos Gravenhorst, for a joint book signing at the Walgreens at the corner of South Kingshighway Boulevard and Arsenal Street. She’ll be signing her new book: Famous Barr: St. Louis Shopping at its Finest. I haven’t looked at it yet, but I know its a splendid read.

Here’s what Jane Henderson of the Post-Dispatch wrote about her: http://www.stltoday.com/entertainment/books-and-literature/years-of-famous-barr-remembered-in-new-book/article_f12b7b01-5a75-5574-b45a-cb6f63266567.html

If you have money to buy a book from both of us, do so. But if you can only buy one, buy hers. You can buy mine later.
