I mentioned last week that I’d post the picture and the name of the first person to buy a copy of The Colorful Characters of St. Louis from me. The winner is (drum roll) Julie Hearnes Sindelar. She hosted an adult education class at Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church where I spoke Sunday about one of my earlier books, The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and The Hard Hats Who Built The Gateway Arch.
I’ve asked Julie to come to my book release party, from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, at the Royale, 3132 S. Kingshighway Blvd., so I can introduce her. I’ll be selling plenty more, through my website, at the release party and at various signings and programs. You can find out more about the signings, programs and website sales through pages of jimmerkelthewriter.com. Of course, you also can buy stores and through the internet.
However you do it, buy!
