Just for fun, here’s some pictures of me with my favorite people, the ones who spend a twenty and a bit more on my books at a signing. Here are some of those I encountered in the last six months. You can be one of those favorite people by coming to my next signing from 1-5 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Arch Store at the Gateway Arch. Buy a copy of The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and The Hard Hats Who Built The Gateway Arch, 2nd Edition, and then ride the tram to the top. Don’t mind the backward titles. That’s what happens when you take a selfie.
Reedy Press published four of my books, Hoosiers and Scrubby Dutch: St. Louis's South Side, 2010; Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans, 2012; The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and the Hard Hats Who Built the Gateway Arch; and the Second Edition of Hoosiers and Scrubby Dutch: St. Louis's South Side, 2014. They're available in bookstores and online. For an autographed copy, send a check for $21.50 made out to Jim Merkel, to Jim Merkel, 4216 Osceola St., St. Louis, MO 63116.
