She made my day

sign (2)I had all kinds of fun signing books and hanging out in the German Cultural Tent of the family-friendly St. Charles Oktoberfest Saturday afternoon. But my biggest treat was 9-year-old Susanna King, shown behind me with a copy of the second edition of my book. Beer, Brats, and Baseball: German-Americans in St. Louis. While I was talking to Susanna’s mom, Susanna picked up the book and started reading it. No, she stared at it and wouldn’t stop while we kept talking. Of course her mom, Olivia King, bought it for her daughter, who attends Blackhurst Elementary School in St. Charles. Let’s hope Susanna lets her mom read it when she’s done!
