St. Louis is back with a bang! Adam Rubin's new book, The Ice Cream Machine, is creating a stir. Last year, more than 20 books with a strong local connection to St. Louis were released on the air.
If you're looking for some great reads this January, here are the top 11 books that I highly recommend. Hendrix is an acclaimed author and illustrator with several titles to his credit. He is also the president of the Master's program in Illustration and Visual Culture at WashU's Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts. Lyndsey Ellis's debut novel, Bone Broth-Florissant, tells the story of a widow with a hidden past in St. George. Jim Butcher, a native of Independence, wrote his first book in the series The Dresden Files when he was 25 years old.
This series follows the adventures of a professional wizard named Harry Dresden who works as a private investigator and battles supernatural villains in modern-day Chicago. The total number of books in his “Templeverse” is 40, and he is also the author of a separate three-book vampire series. Hodgman (1959-2001) returned to his Missouri roots in Madison and Paris with his highly praised and successful autobiography Bettyville. This book is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in learning more about the history of St. Louis. These are just some of the best-selling books written by authors from St.
Louis, Missouri. Whether you're looking for a great read or just want to learn more about the city's history, these books are sure to provide you with an enjoyable experience.
