Elizabeth Terry was at our July SCHS quarterly meeting selling her book, “Oysters to Angus: Three Generations of the St. Louis Faust Family.” Elizabeth Terry, along with two co-authors, now have a new book, “Ethnic St Louis” which she will be selling at our SCHS October 28 quarterly meeting.
On October 1, Elizabeth and her co-authors will be speaking about the book on Thursday, at St Louis County Headquarters.
The following additional information comes from the St Louis County library system email about the “Ethnic St Louis” author event: Accompanied by rare photography, the stories in “Ethnic St. Louis” present a rich tapestry of the people and cultures that have enriched the Gateway City throughout its history. The authors will join a panel of first and second generation immigrants to discuss the significant impact of St. Louis’ immigrant communities both past and present. This event of the 2015 Greater St. Louis Humanities Festival is presented in partnership with the Missouri Immigrant and Refugee Advocates, the MOSAIC Project, the International Institute of St. Louis, and St. Louis County Parks and Recreation.
