St. Louis Walk of Fame Book Makes Perfect Holiday Gift

St-Louis-Walk-of-Fame-book-Joe-5742-Edit-smallerIf you’re looking for the perfect gift for the St. Louis buff or bookworm in your family this holiday season, check out “St. Louis Walk of Fame: 140 Great St. Louisans,” a star-studded salute to one of the Delmar Loop’s most popular attractions!

Written by Joe Edwards, this full-color coffee table book features fascinating biographies and photos of every stellar St. Louisian inducted into the Walk of Fame over the past 25 years — from Maya Angelou to Shelley Winters.

Enjoy historic photos from induction ceremonies as well as helpful tables that organize inductees by name, birthday, field of achievement and star location on the Loop. Learn about the nomination and selection processes and see if you have what it takes to earn a spot among the stars!

The book also makes a great gift for the student or teacher in your life, especially if they’ve been part of the many school groups that visit the Walk of Fame every year. Joe is helping local young people learn about these influential inductees by giving away a copy of the book to every junior and high school library in the St. Louis region!

“St. Louis Walk of Fame: 140 Great St. Louisans” is available for purchase online, at the Moonrise Hotel lobby gift shop, Blueberry Hill Restaurant & Music Club on the Loop, the Missouri History Museum gift shop and bookstores throughout the St. Louis area.
