Remember that good news I said I had in my previous letter to you? I almost can’t believe this, but I just found out that another story that I wrote will be in another anthology. How cool is that?
St. Louis Reflections Book Release Party & Last-minute Holiday Book Fair
Tuesday, December 13, 2011
7-9pm at the Kirkwood Train Station
101 W. Argonne Dr. Kirkwood, MO 63122
There will be readings by the anthology authors. They'll be serving wine and cheese. Of course there will be books for sale for $9.99. And other books written by St. Louis Writers Guild members will be for sale also.
St. Louis Reflections anthology was created to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of the St. Louis Writers Guild. Written by members of St. Louis Writers Guild, there are 45 pieces in the anthology, a mix of poetry, prose, and personal essays. It also includes a list of every member in 2010.
My piece is written about Hendel’s Market (titled “Hendel’s Market” pretty creative, huh?) and of course, you know where that was in Florissant, just two blocks away from where we lived when I was a kid. I hope I did it justice—there were a lot of us Sacred Heart school kids, and others who frequented Hendel’s. But what a place, that's for sure.
