Author Talk: Walking South City: A Journey Through Historic St. Louis Neighborhoods

June 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

About the Program:

The Field House Museum is pleased to welcome back Jim Merkel, author of Walking South City: A Journey Through Historic St. Louis Neighborhoods, on Friday, June 14 at 1:00 pm.

In the wake of COVID-19, Merkel set out on a walk that would take him block-by-block through the tales of history and community in South City. From it came this book, a love letter to the people and places that call South City home.

This program is free with limited availability in person and on Zoom. Reservations must be made in advance at https://fieldhousemuseum.org/events/programs/, by calling the Museum at 314-421-4689, or by emailing info@fieldhousemuseum.org.
