Dan O’Neill

Dan O’Neill was born in St. Louis and grew up in University City. At 15, he lied about his age and got a job as a busboy at the Arena Club, during the formative years of the Blues franchise. O’Neill attended the University of Missouri School of Journalism and spent 32 years as a feature writer/columnist at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, where he covered a number of beats, including Blues hockey. O’Neill is the author of two other Reedy Press books, including Celebration: The Magic of the Cardinals in the 1980s and When the Blues Go Marching In—Championship Edition.

The editors of Missouri Life reviewed nine books that we recommend you check out. From the weird and wonderful, to the struggle for the right to vote, to a charming children’s book, there is something for everyone to read.

In this week’s episode of Turn the Page with Paige, sponsored by The Goddard School, Paige Hulsey sits down with St. Louis writer/columnist Dan O’Neill.
