New Releases

Scenes of Historic Wonder: St. Louis
Quirky, provocative, awe-inspiring, and just plain bizarre describe the scenes captured in this often comical, always fascinating pictorial. The images in this singular collection depict one-of-a-kind moments that we'll never see again, mainly because they reflect a specific place in time in history. Glimpses of everyday work, family, and public life not to mention scenes of leisure, sport, and entertainment convey what made each period unique. Informative captions place each scene in context and give substance to moments that range from mundane to wondrous and, in some cases, downright wacky.

About the Authors:
Authors Cameron Collins and Jaime Bourassa bring their knowledge of St. Louis and their unique take on its photographic history to Scenes of Historic Wonder. Join them in this visual look back at the interesting and offbeat in St. Louis.

When the Blues Go Marching In: The Championship Edition
When I finished the first edition of this book, the Blues had gone 50 seasons without capturing the NHL s ultimate prize. Then came their 51st season, unprecedented and improbable. Nineteen inconsistent games into the 2018-19 schedule, the Blues made a coaching change. Thirty-seven games in, they possessed the fewest points in the 31-team league. Playoffs were a pipe dream, and the Stanley Cup seemed more distant than ever. But steadied by an interim coach, lifted by a rookie goaltender, and sparked by a record winning streak, a storybook unfolded. And with it came a mandate to revisit this volume, to account for the most remarkable episode of all the rags-to-riches tale of a Stanley Cup championship.

About the Author: 
Born in St. Louis, Dan O'Neill graduated from the same University City High School as Tennessee Williams, Bing Devine, and Nelly. With a journalism degree from the University of Missouri, he has been an award-winning feature writer and columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, MSNBC.com, and numerous publications.
