Time to tell your story

Elizabeth June Manning Harper(1)I don’t know about you, but this Saturday, Oct. 7, I’ll be at the Buder Branch of the St. Louis Public Library.  I hope you’ll be there, too. We really need to talk.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., I’ll do brief interviews of you and anybody else who shows up about their unique experience of growing up in St. Louis. On three following Saturdays, I’ll do the same thing at three other St. Louis Library branches. From those, I’ll pick 50 people for full interviews for my upcoming book Growing Up in St. Louis. It won’t be an easy job, because everybody’s experience of growing up is amazing. When I’m finished, I’ll add the 50 from the library interviews to 50 I’ve already done.
