Interested in what Lewis & Clark, Daniel Boone, Zebulon Pike, John Colter, President Jefferson and other notables thought about America's newly acquired westernmost village? Enjoy the west...before it became distorted by TV, movies and novels.

Missouri Fall Signings


As guest of the Fours Seasons Lodge on Lake Ozark, Missouri Life magazine recently hosted an art and book festival. 'La Charrette" was one of the four featured books at this "Weekend at the Lake" event of October 21-23, 2005. The programs and setting were exceptional. Too view Missouri's fall foliage at its best on Osage Beach go to the title link. We all - family and friends - shared a great time together as you can see.

Other fall signing in Missouri include the History Fair at East Central Missouri College campus in Union, Missouri on Novemver 6, 2005. Books, authors and artist will be featured in this celebration of Franklin County History. Call 636-629-5127 for more details. Friends Cathie Schoppenhorst and Ralph Gregory of Marthasville will be there representing "La Charrette" along with my sister Dorothy Meyer.

On the afternoon of November 20, 2005, Holiday Fair will feature "La Charrette" at the Missouri History Museum in MacDermott Grand Hall in St. Louis, Missouri. For the second time "La Charrette" has been selected as one of the 20 books at this Missouri Historical Society invitation only event. Cathie, Dorothy and Helen (another sister of mine) will be there with signed copies. For more details call 314-361-7293 or proceed to the Missouri Historical Society webpage at http://www.mohistory.org/content/HomePage/HomePage.aspx In Texas, Waldenbooks in Padre Staples Mall, Corpus Christi, is sponsoring another signing on December 17. Call 361-991-8034 for details. In my home village of Port Aransas two December signings are scheduled at local RV Parks for winter Texans. Most are here to avoid the winter months in the midwest.

I enjoy reading your posts, Lowell. I featured your blog in one of my recent posts. I suspect German farmers in Missouri weren't all that different from German farmers up in Wisconsin. Your link on my blogroll helps to anchor my blog to its theme.
