If you’re reading this, you likely have a St. Louisan on your gift list. Reedy Press will deliver — literally. It has offered scores of titles about local history over the years, and its authors manage to make that history interesting and even amusing. Goofy illustration of a hellbender? A look up at the world’s tallest man, Robert Wadlow? A trip through time into Club Imperial or a bygone amusement park? These richly illustrated books, all published in 2023, have the local stuff covered.
